Ma'lik Richmond and Trent Mays, high school football players, are accused of rapping a girl while at a party, reported news sources.
Richmond, 16, and Mays, 17, brought unwelcomed spotlight of the teen rape trial to the small town of Steubenville, Ohio, reported CNN.
On the night of Aug. 11, 2012, Richmond, 16, and Mays, 17, allegedly used their hands to penetrate a 16-year-old girl vaginally, reported ABC News.
Ma'lik says he was stunned to get a text from a friend three days after the party saying that one of the girls present that night had accused him of rape, reported ABC news.
"I just texted him, like, 'What are you talking about? Stop playing with me,'" Ma'lik told ABC news.
Prosecutors will argue that the young girl who was allegedly raped was intoxicated and beyond the point of consent, reported ABC News.
A verdict is expected Sunday, reported CNN.
