Ohio: Father of Steubenville HS Football Player Shoots & Wounds Judge

HeadlineAug 22, 2017

In Ohio, the father of a Steubenville High School football player convicted of rape in 2013 shot and wounded a county judge near the Steubenville courthouse on Monday. Judge Joseph Bruzzese Jr. survived the shooting. Suspected shooter Nathaniel “Nate” Richmond is the father of Ma’lik Richmond, who served 10 months after being convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl. The judge was not the one who handled the rape case, and authorities are still looking for possible connections or a motive.
