Two Ohio teens are set to be tried for allegedly raping a 16-year-old girl.
Images and social media messages are central to a case against two high school football players accused of sexually assaulting the victim during a series of back-to-school parties in August.
The case has garnered national attention and the attention of the activist hacker group, Anonymous. The hacker group released information on some individuals connected to the community and football team and threaten to release more unless the parties involved come clean on what happened that August night.
"The town of Steubenville has been good at keeping this quiet and their star football team protected," an Anonymous member wearing the group's trademark Guy Fawkes mask says in a video posted to the group's LocalLeaks website.
