Judge Thomas Lipps ruled Sunday in juvenile court that Steubenville High School students Trent Mays and Ma’Lik Richmond are guilty of attacking the girl after an alcohol-fueled party last August.
The 17-year-old Mays and 16-year-old Richmond were charged with digitally penetrating the West Virginia girl, first in a car and then in a house. They could be held in a juvenile jail until they turn 21.
Mays and Richmond apologized after Lipps found them delinquent of all charges against them.
“I’d like to apologize to her family, [the] community. No pics should have been sent. That’s all sir,” said Mays.
“I’d like to apologize to you people. I had no intentions to do anything, I’m sorry to put you through this — I’m sorry, I didnt… ” said Richmond as he broke down crying.
Afterwards, the mother of the victim’s mother, who is not being named, gave a statement to the media, saying:
“It did not matter what school you went to, what city you lived in, or what sport you’ve played. Human compassion is not taught by a teacher coach or parent. It is a God-given gift instilled in all of this. You displayed not only a lack of this compassion but a lack of any moral code. Your decisions that night affected countless lives including those most dear to you. You were your own accuser through social media you chose to publish your criminal conduct on. This does not define who my daughter is. She will persevere, grow, and move on.
“I have pity for you both. I hope you fear the Lord, repent for your actions and pray hard for his forgiveness,” she concluded.
Trenton Mays and Ma’lik Richmond both offered apologies to the rape victim and her parents, but her parents weren’t having any of it.
The victim’s mother sums up perfectly how everyone feels about this situation.
