    A scandal at a California high school is bringing back memories of a similar case in Steubenville, Ohio where a 16-year-old girl was raped by two high school football players.

    Two 17-year-old high school football players are being charged with sex crimes against six female students, one who was 14-years-old, according to CNN.

    Both boys attend Vista Murrieta High School in Murrieta and they remain enrolled as students, but aren’t allowed on campus pending the outcome of charges against them.

    The boy facing more serious accusations is charged with two counts of rape by force of fear, which involves two alleged victims; two counts of lewd acts on a child under age 14, which involves an alleged third victim; three counts of false imprisonment, which allegedly involves three additional victims; and one count of dissuading a witness, who was one of the alleged rape victims, said John Hall, a spokesman for Riverside County District Attorney Paul Zellerbach.

    The other boy is being charged with “sex-related crimes,” but authorities didn’t specify the charges Tuesday, Hall said. However, at least one charge against him is classified as a serious or violent felony, Hall said.

    But the attorney for one of the teens says what is being called rape was actually consensual.

    “The allegations against my client are that he had consensual sex with another minor. There are no allegations against my client that he has any charges of forcible rape,” attorney Miles Clark III said. “My client comes from a great family. They are very supportive of him.”

    Looks like we have another Steubenville on our hands.

    And rape culture wins again.
