Steubenville Prosecutors Turn To Cell Phone Evidence
Police and witnesses from phone service providers have testified about cellphones collected as evidence in the case against two Steubenville high school football players accused of raping a 16-year-old West Virginia girl.
Thursday marks the second day of the juvenile court trial in eastern Ohio. The testimony focused on how phones belonging to the defendants and others were gathered by investigators.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys earlier had focused on the girl’s level of intoxication and whether she consented to sex.
The case has riveted the small city of Steubenville amid allegations that more students should have been charged. It made international headlines after pictures of the alleged attack began circulating on Facebook.
The hacker collective group Anonymous then threatened several people who witnessed the alleged attack apologize or face retribution.
Steubenville High School football players Trent Mays and Ma’Lik Richmond maintain their innocence.
A visiting judge is hearing the case without a jury.
