48 Extra Days in Rape Case Probation Violation in Steubenville, Ohio

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) – A judge has handed down a 2-month sentence for a probation violation by a volunteer football coach whose Ohio house was the scene of a party that preceded the rape of a girl by two high school football players.
Special Judge Patricia Ann Cosgrove gave former coach Matt Belardine credit for 12 days previously served, meaning he'll be behind bars 48 days.
At sentencing Monday in Steubenville, Cosgrove also ordered Belardine to undergo a drug and alcohol assessment and said the defendant will be subject to random drug and alcohol tests until the end of his new probation.
Belardine admitted leaving the state without permission and going to a bar, consuming alcohol, and being arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct in Arizona.
