The Steubenville sexual assault victim whose case has shaken the nation has been further victimized, but her assailants aren’t going unpunished. After the sentencing of two high school football players who tossed her around like a toy while she was intoxicated at a party, the 16-year old victim began receiving threats on the social media site, Twitter. The two teen girls responsible for the online harassment were charged with misdemeanors for threatening to physically harm and even kill the rape victim.
According to ABC News, the 15 and 16 year-old girls are now awaiting sentencing of their own. The incident should serve as a reminder to teens that what you say online can definitely come back to haunt you.
