Trent Mays Accused of Sexual Assault…AGAIN

I really hate to say I told ya so, but…yeah…TOLD YA SO! I don’t think any of us that were involved in the Steubenville case or who followed the trial closely ever thought that Trent Mays would go silently into the night. Privately, we all discussed our fears that two years in juvenile detention was not long enough for him and that he would more than likely re-offend. His apology was more of an “I’m sorry I got caught” and based on his behavior, and how he preyed upon his victims knowing that they couldn’t fight back because they were too incapacitated to fight him off — it was just a matter of time before he had to hear his name again.

Trent is being accused of another assault — and he took photos. [insert not shocked face] He is now an adult and attends Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio. Somewhere between Xenia and Dayton, I believe. From early reports and discussions with students, it is becoming alarmingly obvious that no one even knew who Trent Mays was, let alone that he was a registered sex offender walking among the student body of CSU.

Tonight when news broke on Twitter, someone sent me a tip and I went looking. These are the tweets that I found. I am still in the process of verifying additional information about the allegations and will update as I know more information.

What I do know is that: Trent Mays should have been locked away for a long time. Just because he can throw a football should not mean that he gets special privileges. Once again, it feels like a situation where the school was protecting or concerned about their football program rather than the safety of young women on campus who a sexual offender may have access to without their knowledge.

In the meantime, anyone can file a complaint with the Title IX coordinator at Central State University. The link to information on how to do so is here as well as the form to fill out to do so.

It is also imperative that if Trent Mays has assaulted you that you contact local law enforcement immediately and make a report. Even if you aren’t a victim and are fearful of his presence on your campus, please make a Title IX complaint using the link above. While he is entitled to an education, as female students you are entitled to a safe environment on your campus. Having an internationally known sex offender on campus who was not identified as such by CSU officials is an absolutely irresponsible act by the college.

Contact Information Title IX Coordinator:
Ariella J. Brown,
Title IX Coordinator University Student Center, Suite 217D
P.O. Box 1004
Wilberforce, Ohio 45384
Phone: 937-376-6563

Update: This morning I sent an email to the Title IX coordinator asking for their policy regarding sex offenders and notifying student body. I was immediately deferred to the university’s general counsel. I called Greene County to find out if Trent had registered with ESORN. He had — shocking. I then spoke to Central State University who advised me that a police report was taken regarding the incident and that the Chief of Police was personally taking care of this and that the officer would have the Chief call me back “within 10 minutes”.

    Nothing will ever happen to him.that family should be cursed. All thr wrong he do, his mother takes it out on blacks youths and adults.she act as if she’s not a mother and I no she have to feel the pain her son has if she get as many of us off the streets. That makes room for her son. He has white privilege status. Just watch how this goes away. Mom will clean this up to and continue to hurt us and our children. If she can send the innocent away. I no hers can get sent away.

      You are so right

        What this guy did was wrong. Very wrong! There was no excuse for it. Yet
        like it or not he did his time as he should’ve. Trent made a very bad decision that night.
        One that he’ll have to live with for the rest of his life. It appears that all is wants is
        to have a new start. Will he or has he reoffended again? This article about him reoffending came out in March. That was almost three months ago. There’s been nothing said about him possibly having re-offended since then. If he did indeed reoffend the media would’ve been all over it. I know people who go to Central State U-. Some of them have met Trent. Despite what’s being said about him in these comments they said he’s a nice guy. I would never defend Trent for what he did to the girl when he was 16. Some people are simply too quick to judge others. In a lot of ways it’s wrong to judge him for something that happened when he was just 16.

          His victim didn’t want to prosecute. Obviously his “new start” includes being a predator…again.

            This is so disturbing. I just watch the documentary.

            I just saw the documentary. Does he prey on African American girls? He sounds like a sociopath. Great job, if you hadn’t been on it how many other girls/women would have been attacked? Horrific that it seems/seemed to be accepted in Stuebenville.

            I just saw the documentary. Thank you for your work and investigation of the truth. This is the most severe punishment I’ve heard of so far in regards to underage student rapists. Working close with the Title IX office, I hear about many of these (protected individuals) that get away with sexual assault. To see someone actual put away, just not long enough by any means, was some tiny amount of social justice. To the comment down below in regards to “Steubenville accepting” this kind of behavior, this is everywhere. Everywhere. Between “The Hunting Grounds,” and “Roll Red Roll,” there can at least be a start to the nation wide conversation that is taking place, in most cities and in all states. Thank you for your part in this and for spreading awareness.

    Wow, so disappointing. He had a chance to do something with himself. Shame on him again

    “Local March 24, 2018
    By Josh Sweigart Max Filby, Staff Writer

    Central State University football player Trent Mays was convicted in 2013 along with a Steubenville High School teammate of raping a 16-year-old girl who was incapacitated by alcohol. But because Mays was a juvenile at the time, his conviction does not appear on the sex offender registry.

    If not for widespread publicity of the crime, Mays’ conviction would be unknown to many of his fellow students, and possibly to the school.

    Central State officials would not comment on their decision to allow Mays to enroll and play football, citing federal laws protecting student privacy.”

      obviously getting a football player is higher priority than safety of all women on campus.

        I think it is reasonable to assume this is absolutely accurate. I was told that the coaches and athletic department arranged his arrival. No one knew anything until he was already settled in. There was no discussion about a sex offender being on campus – nothing. No one even knew who he was until the allegations surfaced and young ladies on campus started doing searches on him.

          Not to get off topic, but if this is what sports and the money it brings to schools does, then get sports out of schools.

    Hi Prinnie just watched the Storyville documentary. I live in the UK but I have to thank you for your strength and resilience to campaign for victims who so often have no voice of their own. It was quite clear in last 10 minutes of the documentary, during the court scenes that Mays had absolutely no remorse and as you rightly say would attack again and again. He obviously has a deluded sense of importance and no moral compass. Karma will find and he will get everything he deserves. Brilliant work Prinnie you are a Warrior!!!

    When the so -called ” justice system” fails, it’s time for street justice !
