Six witnesses testified early Thursday in the Steubenville rape trial. Witnesses have ranged from police officers to employees with Verizon and AT&T- all pertaining to cell phones.

Day two got under way at about 9:25 a.m. Thursday.  One of Thursday's witnesses was a deputy with Jefferson County Sheriff's Department. He testified that on Aug. 16, he picked up three cell phones at the field house and took those phones to the police department.

Another witness was a captain with the Steubenville Police Department. He testified that he seized a cell phone at a home on Aug. 16 and took it to the police department. He also partially analyzed a cell phone of one of the defendants. He says he found two "totally nude" photos of a young girl. One of those photos depicted "girl on floor on her stomach."

He says he reported those photos and some text messages to a detective. That detective did not finish analysis on that phone; another sergeant did, however.

Another witness testifying Thursday was a dispatcher with the Steubenville Police Department who testified that she had some of the cell phones in her possession for a short time before those were picked up.

Day two of the Steubenville Rape Trial concluded about 9 p.m. The trial will resume at 9 a.m. Friday morning for day three of testimony.


ORIGINAL:

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Two 17-year-old girls who testified at the trial of two Ohio high school football players accused of rape say the alleged victim had been drinking that night.

One of the witnesses is a Steubenville High School student. She says the alleged victim was having trouble walking but never appeared to pass out.

The other girl, a friend of the alleged victim, says she had never seen her so intoxicated.

Seventeen-year-old Trent Mays and 16-year-old Ma'Lik Richmond are on trial before a judge.

The case in juvenile court has brought unprecedented attention to the small city of Steubenville through a barrage of social media and criticism that more students should have been charged.
