Early this month, the trial began for two men charged with raping a teenage girl in Richmond. The 2009 gang rape left the girl beaten and unconscious after a homecoming dance, where a crowd of men reportedly participated or watched the rape, and none called the police. Two other men accepted plea deals for time in prison. We get an update on the trial.
