Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla said two 16 year old girls are facing charges after allegedly making threats against the rape victim in Steubenville.

Abdalla said one teen turned herself in and the other one was arrested.

They are being held in the Jefferson County Juvenile Detention Center and will appear before Judge Samuel Kerr Tuesday.

Sheriff Abdalla was in contact with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation on Monday investigating the threats. Abdalla first learned of them on Twitter Sunday afternoon, hours after the verdict came down against two teenage boys who were standout football payers at Steubenville High School.

During the sentencing phase of the trial on Sunday, the judge ruled that both teens are to be committed to the Department of Youth Services for minimum of 1 year. Trent Mays received two years to be served consecutively. Ma'Lik Richmond will serve one year, according to the judge. He said both can be held until they are 21. Mays, who's 17, was sentenced to an additional year in jail on a charge of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material, to be served after his rape sentence is completed.

The charges were filed after the two were accused of raping a 16-year-old girl from West Virginia and a party in the summer of 2012.
