Steubenville, Ohio is a small, mid-west town of about 18,000 on the banks of the Ohio River. When it receives media attention, it is usually focused on Steubenville’s 10,000-seat high school football stadium. The Big Red (as the team is known) is one of the most storied programs in the state, boasting nine state championships. But as football season was getting underway in the fall of 2012, the program was once again in the news, but not because of a victory over a rival team. Two of their players had been charged with sexually assaulting a sixteen-year-old girl. But there was so much more to the story.
