A History of Athletes Catching Sexual Assault Charges

Trent Mays & Ma’lik Richmond

Sport: Football
Year(s): 2013
Charge: Rape, distributing a nude image of a 16-year-old female classmate

Outcome: In a truly 21st-century crime, both Ohio teens were convicted and sentenced to at least one (Richardson) and two (Mays) years in a juvenile detention center. Their case will likely set a precedent for how criminal acts depicted on social media are prosecuted going forward.
