So… What are we going to do about this “Steubenville Legend”?
-submitted by bigblackbootslongbrownhair
"Steubenville High School football coach Reno Saccoccia not only knew that two of his players had sexually assaulted a teen-age girl during a booze-fueled night last August, he also tried to shield his athletes from prosecution, evidence presented during last week’s trial of the two players suggests.
Saccoccia, who has won three state championships and has been inducted into the Ohio Coaches Hall of Fame, is just one of the Steubenville coaches, parents and students who could face criminal charges after a grand jury reviews evidence from the case next month.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced on Sunday that he would convene a grand jury on April 15 to determine if criminal charges should be filed against coaches, parents and football players who failed to report shared photos of the assault on social media, failed to report the incident or attempted to cover it up.”
So he’s facing criminal charges, as he should be.
There’s also a petition going around to get Saccoccia fired: http://www.change.org/petitions/fire-steubenville-football-coach-reno-saccoccia
It only needs 641 more signatures. LET’S MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
