Ericae, even though the victim was out way past her curfew and may have been acting inappropriately, that in NO WAY gave Ma'Lik and Trent the right to do what they did to her. Don't flip the blame to the victim...after all, the judge has already found them guilty and that's all that matters.

Right...here is the lesson: If you want a slap on the wrist for rape, just go to Ohio. The vast majority of other States would have viewed this as an ADULT offense worthy of an ADULT sentence in an ADULT prison!

This entire episode has been tragic for all involved and will have an effect for the rest of lives of the perpetrators and the girl. I hope thye can all move on and become productive people, but i do find it offensive that the girls mother made a public statement that the boys had no moral code. I believe the girl had little as well as she put herself in a very bad situation. I am not trying to play the blame the victim card , but she was not at her local Sunday school picnic. She was openly drinking, petting, and out way beyond an appropriate curfew.Her parents might want to look a little further than pointing their fingers at others and their moral codes.
