STEUBENVILLE - Jefferson County Prosecutor Jane Hanlin and her family had to leave town during the juvenile rape trial because of threats made against both her and her family.

Sunday evening, Hanlin confirmed that threats had been made, and she found them to be credible. Hanlin said there were instances of threats before, but the number of threats of a specific nature grew.

"As the trial date grew closer, we received a number of them that seemed to be more credible than others," Hanlin said.

Have much problem relating to women?

Only their tendency to switch subjects and accuse when facing an inescapable dilemma.

She doesn't even have to be passed out. "Substantially impaired" is the Ohio standard.

So why don’t you share what you think is exculpatory evidence. Make your case.

Oh, wait. That’s going to be hard to do with evidence like pictures of a near comatose girl and witness statements.

And you totally disregard the strong probability that she was drugged? Just how well do you handle a mixture of alcohol and drugs?

Besides, how much did she willingly drink? And after a time of drink and drugs, do you think she was in a position to refuse drinks that were being given to her?

I find it amazing that the perps receive more charity and compassion than the victim. How sad.

I understand. That does not mean I agree.

But neither do I agree with the rhetorical shell game of women, who constitute the numerical majority of voters, advocating for both equality with, and protection from, men.

Alcohol is a drug, and it wasn’t forced on her. Was any evidence presented to indicate there was any date rape drug in her system? We would need more than a “strong probability” here...

After a certain point, yes, alcohol was forced on her. Once she became so drunk that she couldn’t get herself a drink, she couldn’t consent to a drink, either; not just rape.

Or can you continue to give a drunk alcohol until she’s poisoned with no culpability? You can’t.

I didn’t mean here. I was speaking generally, as in the media has “sympathy” for these rapists, yet a few years back they were ready to crucify the lacrosse players without a trial.

She was guilty of being stupid

If someone slipped a rufie in your ginger ale would you like being called stupid?

Any evidence of a date rape drug won’t be there after 12 hours. You obviously have no idea how prevalent those drugs are. Are you aware there was another incident with this football team?

How do you force alcohol on someone? I suppose it would be possible if they set up an IV, but handing a drunk a drink is not forcing it on them. By your way of thinking, a bartender filling a glass would be forcing it on the customer...

Could very well be, I have no idea. But you can’t just make it up because it’s possible.

Just saw a twit that said the Coach may face charges for failing to report. Allegedly he told the crew he would “take care of it” and it has been reported that he instructed the rapists and witnesses to delete all the pics and videos from their phones.....

Evading her legal guardians' oversight, ignoring the advice of her peers, prior statements, unlawful intoxication, lack of a comprehensive recording of the events in lieu of her recollections...etc.

So far as I can tell, there is nothing that happened to this girl that isn't regularly solicited by other women every day, so the actual events, degrading as they may be, do not constitute a rape.

What would constitute rape, seems to be conspicuously absent without comprehensive recordings or admissions of guilt.

I suggest you need help with your reading comprehension AND psychopathy. Have much problem relating to women?

Not only women problems, this one is vying for the dumbest FR posts ever, sort of like someone trying to defend our current oval office resident as one who cuts spending and is a tremendous job creator.....

Dumbest. Posts. Ever. Not a particularly enviable track record to be proud of..........

Back in the 90's I subscibed to National Review. A fellow wrote a letter to the editor saying something on the order of. "Why can't they make great movies anymore without using so much profanity? The other day, I went to a movie and they used the F-word so many times, that at intermission I went to the refreshments counter and ordered an f'ing coke and an f'ing popcorn and they kicked me out of the theater."

Does anyone think that movies like Shane and The Searchers would be better using the f-word?

I don't mean to step in the middle of your skurfufful here, so pardon that. But, I've been around for 46 years and have walked around the block and seen in most of the windows, if you know what I mean. But I have yet to meet a woman who solicited for group activities. That's anectodal. But my question is that since the girl was 16, does this not also count as a statutory rape? Not up on the legalese of digits versus penile penetration.

Who admitted to, or observed the admission of, this drug?

Heard on the news there may be more charges coming.
Good!

Based on the current prevalence of the date rape drug, I’d say it’s not just possible something was slipped in her drunk, it’s quite likely.

No one leaves a drink around in a bar these days. The kids hold onto it, keep it close, and watch it constantly. At a house party people are more relaxed but it’s still not safe. Given that the boys apparently did this once before and the girl was totally out of it then, I’d say she was probably given a drug.
