Judge could move, delay or close Steubenville rape trial

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A judge in Steubenville will decide later today on requests to change move, delay or close the emotionally-charged rape trial of two high school football players.

The judge has been asked to change the location of the trial, delay it, or close it to the public.

The case of two teenage boys who have been accused of raping an unconscious 16-year-old girl at several parties last summer has divided this eastern Ohio community and attracted national attention, partly because some accusations have stemmed from posts on social networking sites and the Internet.

The Ohio State chapter of national pro-choice group University Choice USA, along with the group Ultra-Violet, collected 70,000 signatures on a petition to the Ohio Attorney General, which has taken over the prosecution of the case.

The petition calls for immediate action.
