STEUBENVILLE -- Two girls accused of threatening the victim in the Steubenville rape case are behind bars tonight and they will stay there for the time being.
The 15-and-16-year-old girls are accused of sending threatening tweets. One was a death threat. The girls are being held without bond.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says the victim has been through enough.
"The victim continues to be victimized, she has been victimized by the act itself, she's had to go through the court preceding and it's been horrible for her family to look at these things that have been posted.... freedom of speech is fine, First Amendment is wonderful but these two individuals crossed the line. You cannot, under Ohio law, threaten to kill someone."
The girls will go before a judge next week. If they're found delinquent, the juvenile equivalent of guilty, they could be in juvenile detention until they turn 21.
A grand jury is set to begin investigating the case again next month.
