They got off so light. Sorry for sending texts and pictures, not sorry for raping a person.. ugh.

If they were tried as adults...they'd be going for to prison for a long time. The courts did them a favor in that aspect.
Which is crap..those guys knew exactly what they were doing.
Yup, I agree. I also think that the coach knew about this crap and he should be brought up on charges.

Yep. Complete culture issue in that town.

They shouldn't be tossed in prison for 20 years to "pay for ruining another's life". I am hopeful that the girl will be able to become productive, albeit quite reserved and protective of herself apprehensive of men until she finds a significant other or a great support group and she will eventually be able to get on with her life.
That is a HUGE what if. I'm not sure I understand why someone shouldn't go to jail for a long time for "ruining another's life," especially in this way. I agree that 20 years is extremely excessive, but 2 years is a disgrace.
This poor girl has a huge up hill battle to get to normal life, and I will be honest, she probably never will. It is going to be hard for her to ever feel safe. There needs to be a huge
societal change in that town and throughout the country. More education on how to prevent rape and the meaning of consent.
