At Steubenville rape trial, police talk of phone gathering

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio  — Police and witnesses from phone service providers have testified about cellphones collected as evidence in the case against two Ohio high school football players accused of raping a 16-year-old West Virginia girl.

Today marks the second day of the juvenile court trial in eastern Ohio. The testimony focused on how phones belonging to the defendants and others were gathered by investigators.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys earlier had focused on the girl's level of intoxication and whether she consented to sex.

The case has riveted the small city of Steubenville amid allegations that more students should have been charged.

Steubenville High School football players Trent Mays and Ma'Lik Richmond maintain their innocence.

A visiting judge is hearing the case without a jury.
