    I'm sure the girl who was raped had a significantly more difficult experience than he did.

    This is a recurring theme in Stuebenville. "Those poor boys" I do not recollect seeing this so persistently in other rape cases. Maybe because they got punished this time instead of getting off because the girl was a slut or crazy or drunk or….

    In response, the victim's attorney criticized Richmond's lawyer for showing no consideration to the girl.

  6. Cry us a fucking river. Hope you and your lawyer die in a fire. We'll roast marshmallows and weenies over you. Faggots.

    What is really hilarious is his odds to brush this under the rug are next to impossible. No College will take him lest they want to be labeled as "the school that accepted a rapist"... Well, maybe Penn State, but... He's already disqualified for most employment opportunities (medical, school or any dealings with children/minors, and I believe most government jobs). Even fast food joints might not give him an opportunity due to all the negative press he garners. He's on the national sex registry list, so moving won't hide that fact as he has to report it less he wants to end up in jail again for failing to register. Not as if his name isn't already nationally known...

    Long story short: He maybe ~16, but his life, for all practical purposes, is over. I don't give him 20 years before he an heroes himself because this continuously comes back to bite him in the ass and fuck opportunities up. I also bet he'll also be seeing more of the law because leopards (and rapist like him) never change their spots.

  8. This just proves that the guy is either a sociopath and/or going to repeat his acts again.

    This kid is going to have to find a deep hole to hide in as the world doesn't fall off a cliff outside Stupidville. 10 says he'll find a nice home in Penn State after HS.

  10. Sorry, but I don't have ESP. So how am I suppose to know you are Drinking and Typing? Isn't that like deadly or something?

    Besides: You get more caffeine in your bloodstream faster through the nose than through the gut. At least, that's what I guess since you snort lines of coke. Why not coffee?

    It may not be him personally, could be his family or social group. He may actually have gotten the message in jail, but it sure looks like his surroundings did not. I guess in the end the effect will be the same.

    One of the Steubenville High School students convicted of a high-profile rape in March, 2013, is now back on the football field.
    Ma'Lik Richmond, 18, who, along with Trent Mays, was convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio, is rejoined the roster of the Steubenville Big Red football team as a wide receiver, according to WTRF TV.

    The case fueled an intense national debate about online bullying after hacker group Anonymous exposed photos and videos made the night girl was raped. The images showed two males carrying the inebriated victim by her wrists and ankles and other teens making jokes at the girl's expense.

    I am fairly certain this does not honour the requirements for a registered sex offender. :confused: Anyone know what a tier two offender is limited to?
  15. laughingsock Member

    Back on the team? Wtf, really? He's 18 now is he even supposed to be around minors?
  16. System Member

    A Tier II sex offender is someone convicted of an offense punishable by more than one year in prison that:
    1. is committed against a minor and is comparable or more severe than one of the following federal crimes or attempt or conspiracy to commit one of them: sex trafficking, coercion and enticement, transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, or abusive sexual contact;
    2. involves using a minor in a sexual performance, soliciting a minor for prostitution, or producing or distributing child pornography; or
    3. occurs after the offender became a Tier I sex offender.
    A Tier II sex offender must register for 25 years.
    I'll keep looking for more info

    Jefferson County Officials Name Nathaniel Richmond as Man Killed in Ambush on Judge Joseph Bruzzese

    Common Pleas Judge Bruzzese Shot Outside Jefferson County Courthouse


    Jefferson County Common Pleas Judge Joseph Bruzzese and city resident Nathaniel Richmond exchanged gunfire on the streets of downtown Steubenville early this morning in a incident that left the judge in surgery and Richmond dead.

    Jefferson County officials this afternoon named Richmond as the man who allegedly attempted to ambush Bruzzese as he got out of his car this morning and headed into work. He is the father of Ma’lik Richmond, the former Steubenville High School student convicted in the 2012 rape of a teenage girl.

    Sheriff Fred Abdalla said authorities are still trying to establish a motive. Bruzzese did not handle any of the legal proceedings against Ma’lik Richmond.

    Richmond exchanged gunfire with Bruzzese near the Court Street entrance to the courthouse, Abdalla said, and was shot and killed by a common pleas court probation officer who was walking in Dollar Alley between buildings from Fourth Street to Court Street when the shooter turned on him.

    “Whoever thought this could happen here,” Abdalla said. He noted local authorities are familiar with the suspect.

    He said the shooter and Bruzzese appeared to have exchanged about five shots each, according to courthouse video.

    He said officers are checking court records to see what involvement the suspect had with Bruzzese.

    Abdalla said he is aware of threats being made in retaliation for killing of the shooting suspect.

    “Police in the region have been notified,” he said. “I hope nothing like that happens. If it does, we are prepared to handle it.”

    The courthouse is closed today while the investigation continues, and will remain closed tomorrow.

    Investigators from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation are working outside the courthouse this afternoon. An official update on the investigation is expected this afternoon.

    Convicted Steubenville rapist sues new school and is reinstated onto football team

    A convicted rapist will get the kind of second chance his victim never will.

    By Adam Peck, ThinkProgress


    When Ma’lik Richmond — one of two former Steubenville High School football players convicted of raping a 16-year-old classmate in 2012 — transferred to Youngstown State before the 2016 school year began, many people had the same question: Would the rising junior, who spent nearly 10 months in prison following a rape conviction, attempt to resurrect a playing career?

    Unsurprisingly, the answer was yes. Football head coach Bo Pelini was reportedly made aware of Richmond’s transfer into YSU and met with him in person after their season ended. The defensive tackle made the team as a walk-on, and was slated to appear for the Penguins this season until a student began circulating a petition demanding that YSU prohibit Richmond from playing for the team.

    More than 10,000 people signed the petition, and YSU officials responded shortly thereafter by announcing that although Richmond would be allowed to stay on the team for practices and other team activities, he would not play for the Penguins during this season.

    Richmond—who had previously insisted that his transfer to FCS football powerhouse Youngstown State had nothing to do with football—then sued the school for denying him the opportunity to potentially advance his professional football career. On Monday, YSU and Richmond’s lawyers announced they had reached a settlement that will, among other things, reinstate Richmond onto the team.

    “What is most important is that Ma’lik moves on,” said Susan Stone, an attorney for Richmond. “This is a case about Ma’lik being given all the opportunities afforded a student of good standing.”

    Despite what Stone and her client might believe, university students are not entitled to a football career. Most coaches, particularly at the Division I level, hold their students to higher levels of accountability than a typical student. Breaking even the most mundane team rules can often result in disciplinary action by a coaching staff, including dismissal from the team. And while college athletics departments have a spotty track record for handling instances of sexual assault, players are certainly cut from rosters all the time for getting into legal trouble.

    During court hearings, Richmond’s legal team argued that the school had “hurt Richmond’s football career prospects by curtailing his exposure to professional scouts at the peak of his abilities,” and that the university was “contractually obligated” to let Richmond play, a laughable claim made even more absurd by the fact that Richmond wasn’t even on a scholarship. No college athlete — neither the number one high school recruit, nor the reigning Heisman Trophy winner — is guaranteed a spot on a team’s roster.

    Which makes YSU’s settlement all the more disheartening. Here is a school that ultimately tried to do the right thing—albeit only after facing public pressure and an outraged student body—only to acquiesce to the demands of a convicted rapist’s legal team arguing he is entitled to the kind of second chance that his victim will never receive.

    Not sure the two facts are connected. BTW, the article title has been changed.
