Convicted Steubenville rapist back on football team


The teen football player from Steubenville convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl at a party two years ago is back on the football roster. 18-year-old Ma’Lik Richmond was released in January after serving a year in a juvenile detention center. Fellow teen, Trent Mays, was also convicted in the case, but is still in jail with a two-year sentence.

As of Monday Richmond was back on the football roster in the Ohio town.
