ABC'S "20/20" REPORTS ON THE STEUBENVILLE, OHIO HEADLINE-MAKING COURT CASE INVOLVING TWO HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL PLAYERS

Hour-long Report Includes Exclusive Interview with Defendant Ma'lik Richmond, Friday, March 22 on ABC

Steubenville, Ohio is a football-obsessed city that typically makes headlines for touchdowns not trials. But this past week a verdict in the case of two high school football players split the middle-American town and sparked a national discussion about the world of teens today. Ma'lik Richmond, 16, and Trent Mays, 17, were found delinquent -- the Juvenile Court equivalent of convicted -- of the sexual assault of an intoxicated 16-year-old girl after a night of partying that then played out in shocking text messages, pictures and videos. With the first and only interview with defendant Ma'lik Richmond, interviews with family members, and never-before-seen materials and evidence surrounding the case, "20/20" tells the inside story of what happened that night and in the days that followed.

Elizabeth Vargas' hour-long report is also a cautionary tale for all parents and teenagers, as the case has pulled back the curtain on the secret lives of many teens living in today's digital world. Anchored by Vargas and David Muir, "20/20" airs FRIDAY, MARCH 22 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

David Sloan is executive producer of "20/20."
