STEUBENVILLE -- The rape trial involving two teens from Steubenville is in its second day. Today's testimony focused on cell phones and text messages sent in connection with the case

Prosecutors have introduced graphic text messages in the trial of two Ohio high school football players charged with raping a 16-year-old girl.

The texts include messages from the alleged victim in which she says she doesn't remember anything the night of the attack and is trying to find out what happened.

The girl also implies that she believes she was drugged that night and that others were "taking advantage of me."

The texts introduced Thursday in Jefferson County Juvenile Court also included ones in which 17-year-old defendant Trent Mays admitted that he digitally penetrated the girl.

Mays and his co-defendant, 16-year-old Ma'Lik Richmond, maintain their innocence.

The case has riveted the small city of Steubenville amid allegations that more students should have been charged.
