Man who exposed rapists faces 16 years

A man who helped expose the perpetrators in the Steubenville, Ohio, gang-rape scandal is now facing a much longer prison term than the rapists ever received.

Deric Lostutter - a Kentucky resident at the time who used the handle "KYAnonymous" - has been indicted by a federal grand jury for charges surrounding exposing the rapists. If convicted, he may face 16 years in prison - even though none of the rapists got any more than 2 years.

The federal probe of Lostutter was orchestrated by Steubenville officials who couldn't tolerate having anyone challenge them on anything.
