    Every action comes with consequences…

    Friday, an Ohio high school football player convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl after an alcohol-fueled party was ordered to register as a sex offender every six months for the next 20 years!

    Jefferson County Judge Thomas Lipps gave 17-year-old Ma’Lik Richmond the state’s second-toughest sex offender classification – Tier II however unlike adult sex offenders, Richmond’s name won’t be included on publicly accessible websites.

    And he can even request to have the sex offender classification removed later based on his history of rehabilitation.

    Back in March, Lipps convicted Richmond and co-defendant Trent Mays, 17, in the rape of the West Virginia girl following a party in Steubenville in eastern Ohio in August 2012. The teen is serving at least a year in the Ohio juvenile detention system

    .On the new sex offender requirement, the victim’s attorney, Bob Fitzsimmons says:

    ‘It recognizes the seriousness of the offense that these young men committed and also the significance of the damages that occur when people that take advantage of other peoples’ bodies without consent,’

    Fair price for the crime? What do you guys think?
