Steubenville Councilman Makes Statement Regarding Richmond Returning to Football Team
A statement has been made by a city official in a community plagued with national and international media attention stemming from an infamous rape case.
At a Steubenville city council meeting last week, resident Mark Nelson asked council to draft a statement about Ma'Lik Richmond returning to the football team following Richmond being convicted of rape.
On Tuesday night, that statement was made by Councilman-at-Large, Kenneth Davis. Davis said he came to a decision after consulting with his fellow council members. He said, "This is not the decision for this council or administration, but as a lifelong Catholic and what I consider myself as a pretty good Christian guy, I ask all of you that are against this to think of your reaction."
