Transcript for Steubenville Sex Assault Trial Enters Second Day
We got a different story. That sexual assault trial in ohio where two high school football players have been charged for what they did to a 16-year-old girl who was too drunk to know what was going on. Text, tweets and video were at the center of the testimony and alex perez is covering it from steubenville. Good morning, alex. Reporter: Well, good morning, george. This case ignited a firestorm on social media across the country. Prosecutors say the 16-year-old girl was too drunk to give consent. Evidence presented in court showed she didn't even learn what allegedly happened to her until the following due through text messages. In court thursday, attorneys sparred through nearly 12 hours of testimony. According to text messages admitted as evidence it wasn't until the day after the insz depth that the 16-year-old girl learned she had allegedly been sexually assaulted.

She was really drunk. I never once tried to do anything forcibly with your daughter.

An exclusive interview with abc's elizabeth vargas richmond says the girl was a willing participant in the picture and denies any wrongdoing. I didn't rape anybody. I didn't witness a rape going on and if I would have thought that somebody was being raped or anything like that, I would have stopped it. Reporter: And testimony continues today. A number of teenagers who were at the parties in question are expected to be called to the witness stand. George? Okay. Alex, thanks very much. That party got out of control, i guess. It was.
