Day 2 Wrap: Steubenville

Thursday was Day 2 of the Steubenville rape trial. It ended around 9PM, and during testimony, prosecutors introduced text messages shared between witnesses, the alleged victim and the defendants.

The text messages include those from the alleged victim where she said she did not remember anything of the night of the attack and was trying to find out what happened. She said that she believed she was drugged and that others were "taking advantage of me."

One text sent by one defendant actually admit that he had sex with the victim.

Bob Fitzsimmons, the alleged victim's lawyer, said his client was supposed to testify Thursday, but some testimonies went much longer than scheduled. He also said there would be a good chance she'll testify on Day 3.
