STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (WTVR) – A verdict on the alleged rape case involving two Ohio high school football players could come in on Sunday.

17-year-old Trent Mays and 16-year-old Ma’lik Richmond were accused of raping a 16-year-old girl from West Virginia.

The victim told CBS News that she remembered drinking at a party, leaving the party and then waking up naked in a strange house.

Three teenagers testified against the football players on Friday.  The witnesses said they saw the boys engage in sexual contact with the victim while driving from one party to another.

If convicted, Mays and Richmond could be held in a detention facility until they are 21.
