About this Article

A judge was ready to classify as sex offenders two Ohio high school football players convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl last year after an alcohol-fueled house party. The hearing Friday scheduled by Judge Thomas Lipps at Jefferson County Juvenile Court in Steubenville is a possible first step for the two teens to be transferred from a state juvenile detention center to a facility that works with sex offenders.
