COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) A grand jury on Friday indicted two former Ohio State football players on charges of rape and kidnapping after authorities said they held a woman against her will and raped her earlier this month.
Defensive backs Amir Riep and Jahsen Wint were kicked off the team last week after their Feb. 12 arrest. The indictment was announced by Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien, who said each man faces 33 years in prison and registration as a sex offender if convicted.
Both previously pleaded not guilty to preliminary charges. Their next hearing is March 6. Messages were left for their attorneys seeking comment.
