I guess the concern of some parents is that we heard that there were about 15 kids watching this rape, if not participating in it. The victim was taken to multiple house where at least one adult, possibility a coach, and the kids were told to take the victim away. The party started at a coach's house. Some parents feel that our children are not safe until others or arrested or at least made to answer to all these illegal actions. Under age drinking must not be tolerated. Those adults who allow it should be arrested or made to answer also.

From all of the evidence from the first hearing only a few actually saw anything. BUT!!!!!! What happened to all of the other kids at these parties? I mean kids from other schools that were there and even in the Nodi video you saw at least one girl. Why did they not do anything? I hope they questioned all of them. The parents threw out these kids at the first house. The rapers were gone buy then. By the way my kids are safe with or with out other arrests. They were taught well.

dogeram50, No other charges will be forthcoming. You see, if Reno Saccoccia had been like 99 per cent of other coaches, he would have suspended all who were present. From alcohol to wilding, he would not have been able to compete in football. So, this is why he rewarded the players who were present by allowing then to play. The also enjoy participating in other sports.

You see, football is the ONLY thing to cheer about in Steubenville. Rooting for teen aged boys in the fall is far more important than a mere rape or two.... or more. This is why the entire world is totally disgusted and appallled at the lack of compassion, empathy, or human dignity of a young girl being videoed unconscious and sexually abused. The videos of the famed Big Red " Rape Crew " as they have been calling themselves on line for the past few years laughing at incident.

Steubenville has always boasts about its corruption and bowery meaness and lack of social graces. Amen !

AG DeWine - do your job and arrest the others who were involved in this rape. The coaches who supplied the liquor and the house. Arrest the other teenage participants who watched and failed to act to stop the rape. If this is not done, then COVERUP will forever be over the heads of the community leaders and AG DeWine.

From all of the evidence from the first hearing only a few(3 to be exact)actually saw anything. These were the ones given the letters says there was not enough evidence to prosecute them. I do not beleive the coaches gave them liquor I heard it was other older young adults. (older friends) So I am not sure where the cover up is at with the AG?

Dear MajorMatt, I know that a coach was present and gave or allowed students to drink in his house. If you look at the picture of the girl, you can see two boys who carry the girl and another boy with red shirt on in the picture and the boy who took the picture. That is at least 4 boys. If you count the 3 who testified plus the two that were charged, that's 5. Your kids may have been taught well, but if they are at a party and someone slips them a drug, they will not be able to stop anything. It has happened many times, not just here but all over.
