(AP) The attorney for one of two Ohio high school football players charged with raping a 16-year-old girl says he wants to delay the trial.


Attorney Brian Duncan filed the motion on behalf of defendant Trent Mays, who is scheduled for trial next month in juvenile court in Steubenville (STOO’-behn-vihl) in far eastern Ohio.


Duncan says the motion was filed under seal on Friday. He says he also expects to file another motion this week to move the trial.


An attorney for the second defendant, Ma’Lik Richmond, filed similar motions earlier this month, as well as a request to close the trial to the public.


The case has gained international attention through the work of bloggers and hacker-activists who allege other football players should be charged.
