An iconic photo from the Steubenville, Ohio, rape case, which began on August 12, 2012, when a girl, 16, awoke with a hangover, and almost no memory of the night before. She was naked in a basement she didn't recognize, surrounded by three boys from the football team. Social media and cell phones soon filled in the gaps that the girl's alcohol-blackened mind couldn't. She had gotten extremely drunk and wound up topless, being taken party hopping by the players -- even though she was too drunk to do much but throw up -- sexually assaulted and possibly peed on. Much of it was documented on the cell phones of the players and of kids at the parties. This photo appeared on Instagram.
