Judge Tom Lipps: Trent Mays, Ma'lik Richmond register as sex offenders and no transfer.

On June 14th the Judge will determine whether or not Trent Mays and  Ma'lik Richmond will have to register as sex offenders. I am asking that Judge Lipps require the boys register as sex offenders for their crime. They should be labeled as tier 3 sex offenders which means they would have to register as sex offenders for the rest of their life. I am also asking that he not allow their transfer from a state facility- with jail security, fences, bars, and jail cells, to New Life for Youth Paint Creek facility in Bainbridge. Sheriff Abdalla of Steubenville said in his release that: " Paint Creek facility has no bars or fences outside on their 33-acre property" and that "The living circumstances are more pleasant at Paint Creek especially as compared to dormitory institutions”.

On August 11th 2012, a 16-year old girl was publically and repeatedly sexually assaulted by Trent Mays and Ma'lik Richmond while on lookers took pictures and spread them throughout social media. The victim was unconscious and dragged by from party to party while she was sexually assaulted. She had no memory of the incident and had to find out about it on social media sites. What Trent Mays and Ma'lik Richmond did do this girl was horrific and disgusting. Not only did they callously rape her but the posted it and bragged about it on social media. They gave the victim a life sentence when they raped her and they should be punished for their crimes. Rape culture needs to stop, and people need to know that rape, at any age, is a horrible crime with consequences. On March 17th, 2013, Judge Thomas Lipps found both Mays and Richmond guilty of rape and Mays was found guilty of having and sending pornographic images of a minor. These boys are not sorry for what they did, they are only upset that their football careers are over. One of the assailants said in court when the conviction was read that "Who will want me now?"
We need to end rape culture as a society and not go easy on convicted rapist. They need to pay for their crime and justice needs to be given to the 16 year old victim.

To:
Judge Thomas R. Lipps, Hamilton county Ohio, Juvenille Judge
Attorney General Mike Dewine, Ohio Attroney General
Trent Mays, Ma'lik Richmond register as sex offenders and no transfer.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
