Deric Lustutter helped put rapists behind bars and give a victim justice. Are we really going to reward him with a decade in prison??
The Steubenville rape case helped spark a national conversation about victim-blaming and rape culture.
But the victim only got justice because Anonymous leaked significant social media evidence implicating the assailants — and for distributing those tweets, photos, and video, 26-year-old Deric Lostutter faces more prison time than the rapists got themselves.
Lostutter faces up to ten years behind bars if he’s convicted of hacking-relating crimes. Now he’s gearing up for a costly legal battle — and as he calls for donations, we call on you to give him the nationwide support he needs to win his trial.
Steubenville officials and their FBI allies have sent a dangerous message to men who stand up : Don’t get involved, or else. Let them know we still stand with Deric: Sign your support for his actions and oppose sending him to prison, now!
