One Of The Steubenville Rapists Has Been Freed After 9 Months

"One Of The Steubenville Rapists Has Been Freed After 9 Months"



MaLik Richmond

Ma’lik Richmond, one of the two young football players who was found “delinquent” of having raped a young girl in Steubenville, OH, last year, has been freed from his sentence at a juvenile detention facility. Though the sentence was supposed to carry a minimum of one year in detention, Richmond got out early on good behavior. He served nine months.

Over the course of the trial last Spring, Richmond was portrayed by the media as a sympathetic character — a boy whose “life had read like a script from the movie ‘The Blind Side,’” according to one flattering ABC profile, and was now ruined. At the time, Richmond’s lawyer, Walter Madison, played up the sympathetic aspect as well, stressing that Richmond struggled in his home life and that a conviction would make him have to answer “at 75 years old… for something they did at 16 when scientific evidence would support your brain isn’t fully developed.”

Upon his release Sunday, Richmond’s lawyer again put out a statement asking for sympathy and stressing how much Richmond’s life had been altered. “The past sixteen months have been extremely challenging for Ma’Lik and his extended family,” Madison said. “At sixteen years old, Ma’Lik and his family endured hardness beyond imagine for any adult yet alone child. He has persevered the hardness and made the most of yet another unfortunate set of circumstances in his life.”

The statement did not mention the rape victim.

Now that he is free, Richmond will need to register as a sex offender every six months for the next 20 years. His name will not be on public records of sex offenders, since he received the verdict as a juvenile. With rehabilitation, he has the possibility of getting his time on the registry shortened.

Richmond’s life may have been changed by a guilty verdict, but that doesn’t mean it was ruined. Statistically, according to the Campaign for Youth Justice, youth sex offenders like Ma’lik Richmond are actually fairly unlikely to re-offend, compared both to adult sex offenders and to other juveniles who have committed a crime. Juvenile sex offenders re-offend somewhere between 5 and 14 percent of the time, while recidivism rates for other juvenile crimes stand at 8-58 percent.

The Steubenville rape case is far from over. Trent Mays, Richmond’s accomplice in the rape, remains in detention where he is serving a two year sentence. And several adults are also now under investigation or have been arrested for helping to cover up the assault.

It's sickening that 16 year olds were not only partying and drinking into the wee hours of the morning, but thought that this is ok or cool. Bringing up peeing on the girl as if that's a ok joke to make and stand by and watch/participate in this and think its funny or ok.

And trust and believe if that was my son I would not be hugging him in court. The parents should feel just as ashamed, this is the type of young man they raised

I don't care how much I love my boys. If (God forbid) they ever commit such a crime I will have absolutely no sympathy.

Good. Now authorities in MO need to take care of that rapist in Maryville who raped 14-year old Daisy Coleman. There was a thread about it somewhere. Not much news in that case...yet.

4 more school employees charged in Steubenville rape case

By CNN Staff
updated 9:07 AM EST, Tue November 26, 2013

(CNN) -- A grand jury investigating the 2012 rape of a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio, and educators' responses to a separate rape allegation in the city that year has led to the indictment of four school employees, including the school superintendent, who faces felony charges, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced Monday.

Steubenville City Schools Superintendent Michael McVey faces three felony counts: one charge of tampering with evidence and two counts of obstructing justice. He also is charged with making a false statement and obstructing official business, both misdemeanors, DeWine said.

Also indicted were an elementary school principal, Lynnett Gorman, and wrestling coach Seth Fluharty, both of whom are charged with misdemeanor failure to report child abuse. Volunteer assistant Steubenville football coach Matt Belardine was charged with four misdemeanors: allowing underage drinking, obstructing official business, making a false statement and contributing to the unruliness or delinquency of a child.

This brings to six the number of people the grand jury has indicted after two students were convicted of rape, DeWine said. A school technology director and his daughter were indicted in October.

got to pg 2 and the victim blaming pissed me off.

boys/men need to understand what consent is and what it is not.

you cannot consent when you are drunk. period. end of story. doesn't matter what she was wearing, who she was around, she did not consent and that is rape.

i give not one sh*t about them being labeled sex offenders. i'm tired of hearing how their lives are "ruined" now...they will still live out their lives fine. support needs to be given to the victim. i hope she moves the fvck out of that town and gets some intense therapy.

i wish that the other bystanders was charged.

I do not understand how people have taken what I said and turned it into defending the boys. All I was trying to say was she is not completely innocent. But you see and perceive what you want so idgaf, my opinion stays.


Well, what did you expect? You made your opinion and everyone else is making theirs, some of us just don't agree.  I just don't see how the victim's 'innocence' makes you feel that it should be put into question. These boys raped this girl, regardless of whether she was drunk or not, and got caught and was put on the internet.  You had to have known that what you wrote would result into some backlash, so you can't get mad if someone says your statements sound like victim blaming.

Did you see the blk boy's body language just change?  Hmmmmm.....
 
 I wonder if it's that negative stereotyping effect, where he fears a stereotype about making his group look bad and thus makes himself stand out. His body language is noticably different from the other boys.
