Two teens found guilty of rape

| No Comments

Two high school football stars were found guilty Sunday of raping a 16-year-old girl in August, The New York Times reported.
Judge Thomas Lipps announced his decision after four days of testimony in the case against Trent Mays, 17, and Ma'lik Richmond,16, CNN reported.
Text messages, cell phone pictures and a video provided much of the evidence because the victim did not remember what happened, The New York Times reported.
Mays was sentenced to serve at least two years in the state juvenile system and Richmond was sentenced to serve at least one year, The New York Times reported.
Mays minimum sentence is twice as long as Richmond's because May was found to be a delinquent beyond a reasonable doubt for also distributing a nude image of a minor, The New York Times reported.
The trail gained media attention for its text messages, cell phone pictures and videos, and social media posts around the sexual abuse of the girl, CNN reported.
