There has been an ongoing rape case in Steubenville, Ohio since last August that is starting to really get a lot of national attenton after a disturbing 12 minute video was released online of a juvenile who is reportedly a former Steubenville High student and baseball player, talking about the alleged victim in the case who was a 16 year year old girl from out of town.
The video is disturbing, it's long, it's graphic with what's said in the video WATCH HERE
The police chief in Steubenville had this response after the video's release:
"The Steubenville police department has been aware of this recent video that was released. Since late August 2012 the subject who made the video was interviewed. This has all been turned over to the prosecutors which are the Ohio Attorney Generals Office, who is prosecuting this case. It's always been the policy of the Steubenville Police Department not to make comments on details of a case prior to it going to trial. I know this is frustrating for some. I can't change that now, as you know this is a high profile case and for the parties interested I believe I should not make a comment on it because I can't make a comment on it. It's being handled by an outside agency."
There's a LOT involved with this case from an alleged cover up to the hacking group Anonymous who got involved to help spread the story and now have a rally planned for Saturday, January 5th at the Jefferson County Courthouse.
