I heard that and I also heard that his response to her text message would be used as evidence in court. Those were comments out of his own attorney's mouth ........

Didn't we hear on the news that the victim text'd the one boy and said she was sorry that she knows he did not rape her ????

I know I heard that. I think I heard it on FOX. Anyone else hear this?

Billdog, I agree. I also think that a lot of the hype has to do with the coaches and their own boisterous image. I went to school with the Browner boys and they were full of hype. I wont say anything more but your right again, no success story here ......

I heard about this case when all this first happened last summer. It's amazing to me that so little has been done and I hope that all that were present during this young ladies assault are punished in some way. I'm always disgusted when athletes are treated like some type of God's. High School Athletes are a joke. 95% never go on to even play in college, or even go to college for that matter. Most that played football or basketball when I went to high school are nobody special today. Student (want a be athletes) need to look at reality and quit making these kids into something they are not. Anybody that would do this act to another person is scum. I hope they are sent to facility that they learn what it is like to be raped first hand. Nothing but POS.

I suggest that Judy does a thorough analysis if she even takes a minute of consideration to this offer. I surely wouldn't want this individual counseling anyone with any need that I can think of. As for skills beyond as noted. Organizational skills vary depending on what we are talking about. Representing would be the key word here that would immediately draw caution. One would have perceived you to have been much better off by calling the number that she posted verses posting the*****that you did. That's a strike in organizational skills and pure lack of using what is known to be your brain. LOL

Good job Judy, I'm wondering if your agency has any need for volunteers with Counseling & problem solving backgrounds to perhaps be available for emotional support to these victims? I represent a small group of helping hands...

Also do you have a local affiliation or the desire to set up a Satellite office in the Warren area? It might be better to email you directly since this message board is the wrong place for many reasons I won't go into...

The video of teens laughing and joking about the rape is despicable and disgusting, our hearts go out to the young girl and her family.

Since these boys apparently took nude photos of the young girl without her permission, and sent them over the internet, that might legally constitute child ****. We hope federal law enforcement will consider getting involved. Hopefully anyone with information will contact law enforcement.

A lengthy New York Times story a couple of weeks ago provides chilling details about the rape of a girl and the inadequate response to that crime by Steubenville school officials.

After reading about this case, we cannot help but see some parallels between this situation and that which occurred at Penn State. Although the crimes are different, it is a fact of both cases that in each there is a definite mystique around the football program and a cult of personality surrounding the coach (Paterno at PSU, and Reno Saccoccia in Steubenville). In both cases, the love of football has prevented the proper investigation into the alleged rape and the punishment of those involved.

We call on the school board to suspend Coach Saccoccia for his behavior. The fact that he has refused to take any real disciplinary steps towards the football players that either witnessed or in some way abetted the alleged rape is disturbing,

and his treatment of the New York Times journalist who spoke to him about the case is frightening. His actions are indicative of someone who cares more about their win-loss record than about the young people they are supposed to be improving.

We also urge the school board to examine the actions of Superintendant Michael McVey and Principal Shawn Crosier. We are disappointed that they left all disciplinary decisions up to Coach Saccoccia, and the fact that they failed to follow up with any of the students in attendance at the party where the alleged rape occurred is distressing. This sad case has all the tell tale signs of an attempted cover-up, and our hearts ache for the victim in this case who has been subjected to undue scrutiny and blame.

We hope that the added attention on Steubenville High School will result in justice for the victim, repercussions for the alleged rapists, and accountability for Steubenville officials. We hope that anyone who may have knowledge or have been harmed will contact law enoforcement.

This appears to be another case of local authorities trying to smooth over then coverup something really bad that happened without exposing their local athlete heros. This sheriff is in it over his head. The assaulted girl deserves better, and the more I see on the national TV reports, the more I see the local coverup unraveling.

Rape is rape. The authorities like this Neanderthal Sheriff in Studumbville are pathetic. The athletes rape coverup by the sheriff and prosecutor has been exposed and now they are attacking the victim's support group Anonymous? More then just the two rapists need to go to jail for the coverup too.
