Steubenville Rape Case: Defense wants Ohio football players' trial moved
(CBS/AP) STEUBENVILLE, Ohio - The attorney for one of two Ohio high school football players charged with raping a 16-year-old girl says he's seeking to get the trial moved and close it to the media and the public.
Attorney Walter Madison said Friday he has filed those motions and another seeking more time before the trial, which is scheduled next month in juvenile court in Steubenville in eastern Ohio. Madison says the case has gone "out of control" amid extensive online and media attention.
The case has gained international attention through the work of bloggers and hacker-activists who allege that other football players should be charged in the August incident but have been protected through a cover-up.
