Appeals court handed down decision Thursday to teen convicted of rape


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- An Ohio appeals court has upheld the sex offender classification for one of two former high school football players convicted in connection with the now-infamous Steubenville rape case.

The 7th District Court of Appeals handed down the ruling on Thursday in the case of Ma'Lik Richmond. Last year, Richmond and Trent Mays were found delinquent of raping a 16-year-old West Virginia girl after an alcohol-fueled party. As a result, both teenagers were classified as Tier-2 sex offenders.

Richmond was recently released from the Cuyahoga Hills Juvenile Detention Facility after serving less than a year. If the appellate court ruling stands, Richmond must register as a sex offender every 180 days for 20 years.
