2 girls charged with threatening (Steubenville) Ohio rape victim
TBO ^ | 03/19/2013 | ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS

Posted on 03/19/2013 10:20:45 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A day after two high school football players were convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl, authorities arrested two Ohio girls suspected of making online threats against the accuser.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said the girls arrested Monday posted threatening comments on Twitter on Sunday, the day the players were convicted in Steubenville. One of the messages was later reposted on Facebook.

The rape case brought international attention to the small city of 18,000 and led to allegations of a cover-up to protect the Steubenville High School football team.

Steubenville police Capt. Joel Walker said the Jefferson County girls, ages 15 and 16, were being held in juvenile detention.

The older girl was charged with aggravated menacing for a tweet that threatened homicide and said "you ripped my family apart," according to the attorney general's office. The girl is a cousin of defendant Ma'Lik Richmond, attorney general spokesman Dan Tierney said Tuesday.

A Twitter message from the younger girl threatened the accuser with bodily harm, leading to a menacing charge, the office said.

I don’t know if this has happened but for the victim’s safety... I hope her parents move and quickly. I don’t think she could ever return to school and go on with her life in that town. IMHO.

Such an multi-talented family - a rapist and a female thug as cousins. They both belong in prison.

Go watch the Tom Cruise move “All the Right Moves!” It’s about a PA town that’s dying just like Steubenville Steubenville’s only claim to fame was that it was the birthplace of Dean Martin.

When the town is called Stupidville by a certain former under aged porn performer (star and actress just aren’t the right words) - yes, that Traci Lords - you know your town has an image problem. I think CNN dredged her up for this story.

Why was Traci Lords going down on Steubenville?

Well, that didn't come out right.

Inbred? Pretty much. The population is a fraction what it was when the steel mills were still open and all they have now is Friday Night Lights football and the one or two tourists a decade who want to see the town where Dean Martin was born. The victim’s hesitancy to go through with prosecution is explained by the threats she’s now getting from these local sluts, who probably feel jealous she was the one their heroes chose to abuse. River rats.

There is a story written by a sports writer that details how a cousin of Ma’lik’s who was present at the party, a young man named Sean, did try to stop the assault and told his cousin that what he was doing was wrong. He isn’t getting enough press to my mind.

May Steubenvillian take its place along side the term Hooligan to denote lawlessness and shame.

I have not followed this story closely and I have been wondering, was the other boy who was charged, White? We only see pictures of the one kid, but never the other kid, who no one seems to be concerned about.

I agree. I hope that her father is looking for a job elsewhere, and that they can relocate quickly. I just can’t imagine a girl her age trying to grow up amidst all of that. I can’t imagine it being easy for an adult, much less a girl.

I should have added that the only picture that I have seen was the one with the CNN story about how the case was ruining the boy’s life and killing all opportunity for a future. It was a picture of a Black boy with his Black lawyer.

If they bring a grand jury into session to look at the entire situation I suspect you’re going to see others indicted. This event could really envelope the entire community as it unfolds. jmo.

Did either one of those two “Boys” win the 3 dollar bet?

If i was the dad i’d make it damn sure to these two clowns that they both DO NOT want to get out of jail, for personal health reasons.

Sounds like a good part of it is. They dragged this poor unconscious girl to multiple parties and not one single person stopped it or reported it. She only found out after people starting trading videos and making fun.

I hope the football coaches who told the boys they would "take care" of this; are sent to jail also.

Clearly. She was doing porn at, what?, 15 or 16? She claims she was raped in Steubenville, which until recently might not have been believable.

She began at age 15. She posed in penthouse at 15. She a had a fake birth certificate that fooled everyone and she did not look 15. Before her age was discovered and her movies and pictures deemed child porn I did in fact see them. She looked closer to 21 then 15. She fooled Bob Guccione.
