STEUBENVILLE, Ohio – Three teenagers have testified that a 16-year-old girl who says she was sexually assaulted by two Ohio football players last summer was drunk and didn't seem to know what was happening.
Mark Cole, Evan Westlake and Anthony Craig on Friday gave their accounts of what happened, including descriptions of the girl being digitally penetrated in a car and later on a basement floor.
The teens invoked their Fifth Amendment right against testifying for fear of self-incrimination as the rape trial in Steubenville entered its third day, but a judge granted them immunity from prosecution. Their testimony is a crucial part of the state's evidence because the West Virginia girl says she doesn't remember what happened.
The girl is expected to testify Saturday.
