Teens Sentenced For Threatening Steubenville Rape Victim

May 3, 2013

Two teenage girls have been sentenced to probation for sending threatening social media messages sent after a guilty verdict was reached in the Steubenville High School football rape case.

The messages sent in March threatened homicide and bodily harm against the victim who was attacked by two football players after an alcohol-fueled party last August. The messages were sent the day a judge found the players guilty of raping the teen. The grand jury investigating whether other crimes were committed in connection with the case adjourned yesterday until May 23 to give investigators more time to examine evidence and interview witnesses.
