Court Allows 21-Year-Old Convicted Rapist To Play In College Football Game

A federal appeals court is allowing a man convicted of sexual assault to continue to play college football this weekend, Crime Online reported, even as his university tried to keep that from happening.

Ma’lik Richmond, 21, was convicted in 2013 of digitally penetrating a heavily intoxicated 16-year-old girl and taking photos of her naked body in the infamous Steubenville, Ohio case, along with his co-perpetrator Trent Mays. The victim apparently only learned that she had been raped through widely circulated social media posts showing her repeated assaults.

Richmond, who was 16 years old at the time, served about 10 months in a juvenile detention center for the crime, according to USA Today. He then returned to his high school football team and later joined the football team of Youngstown State University.

After the ensuing controversy, including a petition started by a Youngstown student, the university decided to block Richmond

Nine people are dead, including the lone gunman, after a shooting at a Dallas Cowboys watch party in a Plano, Texas home on Sunday. 

In a CBS report, the city’s police chief called the football party shooting the worst mass shooting in Plano’s history.

“We’ve never had a shooting of this magnitude; never had this many victims,” Plano Police Chief Greg W. Rushin said. The victims are all in their 20s and 30s.

Neighbor Stacey Glover told Dallas News that the party started off cheerful; people were grilling outside in the afternoon. She heard laughter and conversation. Then around 8 pm, she heard gunshots and smelled gunpowder. By 8:30 pm, a police officer spotted “bodies down in the backyard” and an active shooter inside the home.
