Anonymous has published the names of men who allegedly gang-raped a cheerleader at a party 12 years ago - after she turned to the hacking group for help following the Steubenville case. Amanda Stevenson, 26, contacted the group after returning to Laurelville, Ohio, where she was raped when she was 14, with the intention of gathering evidence from her case - and discovering the sheriff's department no longer had it.
Fearing that authorities in the close-knit community were failing to help her chase her alleged attackers, she contacted Anonymous after reading that they had helped bring the Steubenville case to national attention. That case, in which two students were prosecuted in a close-knit Ohio community after Anonymous leaked videos and photographs of the attack, was similar to her own, she said.
Now with the help of Anonymous, police have re-opened the case. But she told MailOnline that, due to problems working with authorities in Laurelville, she is uncertain if she will ever see a conviction. Fighting back: Amanda Stevenson, pictured with her fiance Tim Tolka, is seeking justice 12 years after she was gang-raped as a high school freshman. She is seeking help from hacking group Anonymous.
But I'm coming forward because this is about authorities being held able. Stevenson said that the horrific attack unfolded as she attended Cheerleader rape stories first high school party at a remote hunting cabin with her boyfriend when she was a high school freshman. When her boyfriend wanted to leave, she decided to stay and agreed to get a ride back with someone else.
When he left, someone handed her a Mountain Dew drink and after drinking it, she told Mother Jones that her limbs began to go limp and she lost the ability to talk. She said she remembers being locked inside a room with five boys before they began passing her around, grabbing her. She said three raped her - while she could do nothing to stop them. After one of the boys drove her home the next morning, she told her parents about the attack and they took her to the local hospital where she took a rape test. Strong: She said she is still haunted by the rape but said she was unable to deal with the investigation as a teen.
Records show the hospital contacted the Hocking County Sheriff's Department. She said she was too scared at the time to tell authorities the names of her alleged attackers. When she returned to school, rumors began that she had made up the rape story so that people did not call her a slut for having sex with the boys, and when deputies started interviewing students, she said she received threats. Eventually she moved to Virginia to live with her father. Hacking group Anonymous played a central role in the Steubenville rape case.
They were sentenced to a minimum of one year in Cheerleader rape stories juvenile detention institution with a maximum stay until they are The case emerged after Steubenville football players made fun of the year-old victim, who was passed around and raped in Augustby spreading videos and pictures of her.
An Anonymous hacker, known as KYAnonymous and now revealed as security consultant Deric Lostutter26, was responsible for publicizing these videos and images. They inspired greater public interest in the case. In December, hackers with Anonymous and KnightSec posted a video on a fan site for the Steubenville football team, threatening to release personal information of those involved in the Steubenville rape case if they did not come forward and apologize.
The FBI is now investigating Lostutter for his role. In a bizarre twist, if convicted of any hacking-related crimes, Lostutter faces up to 10 years in federal prison - nine more years than the minimum sentence for the convicted Steubenville rapists. In April, Anonymous vowed to expose the identities of four boys who raped a year-old girl who subsequently killed herself after they circulated a photograph of the assault. The hacking collective said that they knew who two of the supposed culprits were and that they were confirming the identity of a third before putting them on the Internet.
Rehtaeh Parsons, 17, hanged herself in her family's bathroom in Novia Scotia, Canada, two months ago after being relentlessly tormented. She said the sheriff's department eventually dropped the case, saying they did not know where the assault had taken place and did not have any names for alleged attackers.
When Stevenson read the story about the rape in Steubenville, in which an incapacitated year-old girl was passed around athletes in Augustshe said she saw similarities with her own case. When she contacted CNN about running her story in the wake of Steubenville, a journalist encouraged her to gather as much of the evidence from her case as she could. She returned to the hospital and collected her medical records, which noted she had been the victim of a sexual assault and had been referred to Hocking County Sheriff's Department.
But when she went to the department, they had no record of her investigation and no longer had the clothes she had been wearing the night of the attack, she said. She also discovered that her rape kit was no longer stored and she was eventually told it had been destroyed in an 'act of vandalism' when a fridge had been knocked over, she said. She said she also learned deputies had compiled a list containing 'six or seven' names during their initial investigation.
When asked why authorities would fail to help her, Stevenson said: 'I've asked myself that. It's a stereotypical Midwest, Ohio town. Football rules, wrestling rules. They were wrestling stars and with that comes entitlement. She added that while it is one thing that the case was mishandled in the past, it is another that she believes the case continues to be mishandled.
The couple decided to make a plea on the private of Operation Abuse Awareness, an Anonymous-affiliated website Cheerleader rape stories up after Steubenville. They included names and contacts of her attackers. Within hours, they started talking to a member with the screen name Jonathan Perez, who then re-posted the information to his public website.
Attack: The victim of the Steubenville rape case is pictured in a photo that was shared on social networks. While the couple were shocked he had published this sensitive information, they were overjoyed when Hocking County detective Caleb Moritz contacted Perez on Facebook. A week later, Moritz traveled to Virginia to interview Stevenson and let her know that the department had reopened her case.
But Moritz was worried about Perez's website and feared the alleged attackers could read the information and use it to craft an alibi. When the couple contacted Perez, he said he had forgotten the password to remove the information. Authorities told Mother Jones that there were problems with the Cheerleader rape stories - thanks to this public information and because of the lack of kept evidence.
Convicted: Trent Mays, 17, left, and Ma'lik Richmond, 16, were convicted of raping the girl last year. The department failed to return a request from MailOnline seeking comment. Stevenson has also received help from the Attorney General's office but when representatives went to the sheriff's department to offer assistance, it was declined, she said.
Refusing to give up, she contacted her congressman and the sheriff has now accepted the Attorney General's help, Stevenson said. Hackers: Help from Anonymous has had mixed but police have now re-opened the case. Stevenson said she now hopes to work with legislatures to improve objective investigations for the victims of sexual abuse.
She accepts she might not get the justice she craves Cheerleader rape stories of the lack of evidence.
But she hopes to add to the pressure on law enforcement to take rape cases seriously. She said she was not equipped to deal with the attack when she was so young, but now she is willing to fight as hard as she can for justice.
