TULSA - In a story that mixed the worlds of high school football, social media, politics, and law, a judge has found two teenaged boys guilty of raping a 16-year-old girl during a drunken night of parties last summer.
Technically, because the non-jury trial was held in juvenile court, the boys were found "delinquent."
They face detention until the age of 21.
Trent Mays is 17, Ma'lik Richmond 16.
Prosecutors said the two assaulted the girl in a car while someone videotaped the crime on a cell phone, a recording that was deleted the next day.
They assaulted her again in the basement of a home where another teen party involved heavy use of alcohol.
At least two photos showing the girl partially or fully naked and in compromising positions did survive the evening, and were used as evidence.
The case sparked a lot of community outrage, especially after another video surfaced showing some teenaged boys calling themselves the "rape crew" laughing and joking about the attacks just hours after they occurred.
There was also a lot of talk about why more people weren't charged.
Comments made by the football coach and an unpaid assistant were deemed insensitive and dismissive of the rape, and collusion between the football coach and local law enforcement was alleged.
The victim testified that she doesn't remember the events of the night in question, and believes she was drugged.
