The internet has leveled the playing field, and individuals are now able to act as a group to pressure institutions - which might be otherwise predisposed -  to consider behaving in an ethical manner.

One can only hope that the young girl who was abused and her parents have a sense of the massive outpouring of support for them around the country and the world.

One last group deserves attention. This story only represents the tip of the Steubenville iceberg of corruption and brutality. It's chilling to consider the kinds of conditions that many of the women and girls in Steubenville must live under, on a daily basis.

In a list of 74 universities ranked in Ohio, OSU is listed #1, and Ashland is #20. Whether their ranks hold up after their statements, or lack thereof (when they will presumably finally break their silence on Monday) remains to be seen.

UPDATE Mon. Jan. 7, approx 12:30 pm EST, Ohio State Bar Association :
In response to comments on their Facebook page at  https://http://www.facebook.com/OhioBar?__req=2s calling for the investigation and disbarring of Jane Hanlin, The Ohio State Bar Association posted:

UPDATE Mon. Jan. 7, 11:54 am EST: Ohio State University Facebook page posted " Michael Nodianos is no longer a student at The Ohio State University."


UPDATE Mon. Jan 7, 2013, 12:20 am EST: Charlie Keenan and Kent State University

Kent State University says that it is "reviewing the status of an incoming freshman athlete because he was a member of the Steubenville, OH high school football team, two members of which have been charged in connection with a notorious rape case...The student whose status is under review is Charlie Keenan, a senior at Steubenville High School who has been a star athlete on the football field and wrestling mat."
LocalLeaks identifies Keenan as a known member of "The Rape Crew."  His mother is County Prosecuting Attorney Jane Hanlin, whose actions regarding this incident have been questioned. LocalLeaks says, "One of the parties to which the unconscious victim of this horrible crime was dragged to took place at the Hanlin house."
