All of which would be satisfy a visceral desire for revenge, but useless. What they ought to feel is how profoundly they disgraced themselves by their actions & how shameful their attitude towards women is, with a side helping of how reprehensible it was for everyone else to stand around taking snapshots & giggling. For them to understand why they deserve to be miserable is a lot more important than compounding their misery. If they did, they would be able to change their attitudes & then help change them in other people, maybe do a little something to beat back the tide of assaults.
I question whether they ever will, but that's another matter.
They're young so anything is possible, but I doubt it.
One apologizes, not for what they did to the girl (apparently that's just fine!) but that they took pictures and passed them around. I'm sure he IS sorry they took photos and passed them around since those photos and videos helped convict him! He now knows to be sneakier next time.
The other cries that no one will want him anymore.
People keep saying that this will follow these guys the rest of their lives, BUT these two were tried as juveniles, so does anyone know what OH law says about that?? I know that where I am, a juvenile's records are, usually, sealed once they've served whatever time they've been given (or turn 18/21, depending on what they did) so that their crimes DON'T follow them the rest of their lives. I read that the max sentence they can be given is to be in a juvenile detention facility until they are 21 but it's sounding more like they are going to get only one or two years. At that point this really could all just go away. The media frenzy will be gone and one to whatever the story of the day is, their records could be sealed, and they could just go back to life as usual...particularly if they moved to somewhere else.
The victim is getting death threats and these boys could very well just walk away with a slap on the wrist. There's no justice in that.
I, personally, believe that violent offenders should be tried as adults and sentenced accordingly.
ETA: A quick google search comes up with http://www.opd.ohio.gov/Juvenile/JV_Sealing.htm
which makes it look like the records couldn't be expunged, but could be sealed IF a Board decided that the boys were "rehabilitated".
