It looks as if that little opinion piece ^^ might not be quite accurate.
Hard to review new charges that don't exist...
The "inadvertent leak" was from the football fans, the blogger is the one that brought attention to the rape case that was being swept under the rug. What a load of crap.
Here is another brilliant editorial. This chick is seriously stupid.

48 extra days in rape case probation violation
A volunteer football coach whose Ohio house was the scene of a party that preceded the rape of a girl by two high school football players received a two-month sentence Monday for violating his probation in that case.
Matt Belardine was one of six people charged last year by a grand jury investigating whether other laws were broken in the case of a 16-year-old West Virginia girl raped after an alcohol-fueled August 2012 house party attended by Steubenville High School football players.
In that case, Belardine, 27, pleaded no contest to one count of making a false statement and one count of enabling underage drinking. He received a suspended six-month sentence and was ordered to serve 10 days in jail and one year of supervision.
Last week, Belardine admitted leaving the state without permission and going to a bar, consuming alcohol, and being arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct in Arizona, in violation of his probation.
On Monday, Special Judge Patricia Ann Cosgrove gave Belardine credit for 12 days already served, meaning he will spend the next 48 days in jail, said Dan Tierney, a spokesman for the Ohio Attorney General's Office. A message was left for Belardine's attorney.
Cosgrove also ordered Belardine to undergo a drug and alcohol assessment and said he will be subject to random substance abuse tests until his new probation period of six months ends, according to Tierney.
Belardine was arrested last month in Arizona at a protest over the grand jury decision in the Ferguson, Missouri, police shooting, according to media reports. Scottsdale authorities said Belardine was fighting with protesters.
Belardine "did not conduct himself as a 'responsible law abiding citizen' while in Scottsdale, Arizona," contrary to conditions of his probation, according to a filing in Jefferson County court this month by the attorney general's office.
YSU football player wants off sex offender list

COLUMBUS (AP) - A judge will decide whether a man convicted as a juvenile of raping a 16-year-old girl during an alcohol-fueled party should be removed from Ohio's sex offender listings, as allowed by law.
Judge Thomas Lipps scheduled a hearing Thursday in juvenile court in Steubenville in the case of Youngstown State University football player Ma'Lik Richmond.
Richmond, now 21, was convicted in 2013 of raping the West Virginia girl at a party that followed a football scrimmage the previous year. He served a one-year sentence and later rejoined the Steubenville football team. He went on to play at YSU.
After his conviction, Richmond was ordered to register
his address every six months for the next 20 years. In 2014, Lipps agreed to reclassify him so that he has to register only once a year for the next decade.
Ohio law allows juveniles to request removal altogether. Richmond's public defender declined to comment ahead of the hearing. The state opposes the request.
A second juvenile convicted in the crime served a two-year sentence. His attorneys plan a similar request in the future.
Richmond was released from prison in January 2014 and attended colleges in West Virginia and Pennsylvania before transferring to Youngstown State in the fall of 2016 as a sophomore.
Last year, Youngstown State sidelined Richmond after getting backlash about him playing football. After Richmond sued, a settlement with the university allowed him to stay on the active roster. Richmond is currently a student and a football player, Youngstown State spokesman Ron Cole said Monday.
As that controversy played out, Richmond's father, Nathaniel Richmond, was killed in August 2017 in an unrelated confrontation when he shot a judge in a courthouse parking lot and a probation officer returned fire. The judge had been overseeing a wrongful death lawsuit the father filed against a housing authority.
