This video is sickening, but I had to go back and watch it and listen to it closely as Michael Nodianos’ attorney Dennis McNamara stated that Nodianos was not present at the same time that Jane Doe was in the house. McNamara insisted that his client was not a witness in the case. Nodianos arrived at the house as the victim was leaving, and heard about the incident from witnesses according to McNamara.
That does not seem to be the case. At 3.49 in the video, one of the boys stands up and says “C’mon man (bro), we are going down.”
Nodianos stands up and says quite clearly, “Right now, what they are trying to do, they are trying to help a dead girl.”
Clearly, at least one of the boys is concerned about Jane Doe and she is obviously present downstairs somewhere – I presume the basement. So Dennis McNamara does not have the correct facts.
At 6.50 in the video, one of the boys states…”Bro (or Nodi or Cody), you raped a girl.” This comment must have been directed at someone in the room!
Alexandria Goddard is currently setting up a timeline with the tweets and the transcript of the video. This can be found here.
Here is a part of the transcript:

Shocking images have been found on a cellphone showing two more girls, facedown and partially naked on the floor of the same basement where the Ohio rape of a 16-year-old girl allegedly took place, it can be revealed today.
The photographs were stored on a cellphone belonging to a teammate and friend of the Steubenville case accused, Ma’lik Richmond and Trent Mays – and raise the chilling possibility of two more, as yet unknown, victims.
The images were not taken on the night under investigation and it is not clear whether their subjects were conscious or aware of being photographed.
