Football sex charges in Ohio prompt website

— Authorities investigating rape accusations against two high school football players in eastern Ohio have launched a website intended to sort fact from fiction as interest in the case balloons.

Steubenville city and police officials announced the site Saturday.

The 16-year-old boys are set for trial Feb. 13 in juvenile court in Steubenville on charges that they raped a 16-year-old girl in August. Their attorneys have denied the charges in court.

Public interest has increased with circulation online this week of an unverified video that purportedly shows another young man joking about the accuser. The video apparently was released by hackers who allege more people were involved and should be held accountable.
