Hacker arrested for Exposing Steubenville Rape Case Faces more Jail Time Than Convicted Rapists

Weird are the ways in which law takes its course/action and most of the times it leaves a common man bewildered—are the laws instituted to protect us from oppression or comply with the accusers.

Charges framed against the 26-year old corporate cyber security consultant, Deric Lostutter, who helped in posting a video about the infamous 16-year old Steubenville, Ohio rape case, is a case in point. If the charges are proved, Lostutter could face jail term five times more than the convicted rapists.

TechChurch reported that a young American made the rape case a national shame and outrage by posting video of the rape on the fan page of Steubenville’s Big Red football team (RollRedRoll.com) that showed some team members of having raped and humiliated a 16-year old drunk girl in August 2012.

He was handcuffed and detained outside his house while the FBI agents used abusive words against him, searched his house and took away his computer and Xbox (http://www.projectknightsec.com/). The FBI, however, had a different story to tell. It said that they had search warrant against the hacker of the site RollRedRoll.com and were searching evidences in connection to that.On the other hand, Lostutter believes the search to be politically motivated”by local officials in Steubenville whom he dared to expose.

Last week, NEWS9 confirmed that that Ma’lik Richmond has been released from an Ohio juvenile detention facility. The release came after the first of the year. In March of 2013 Richmond, along with fellow student athlete Trent Mays, were convicted of raping a then 16-year-old girl in August of 2012.
