The Huron County Sheriff's Office is investigating a rape complaint by a 16-year-old girl.

"It came in through a counseling center. It initially came to Norwalk," Detective Kayla Zander said.

After the Norwalk Police Department determined the suspected rape happened on South New State Road, Willard, they turned the case over to the sheriff's office Friday afternoon.

"The victim is 16 now. The victim is female. It happened when she was 15," Zander said.

When the incident reportedly happened, the girl didn't go to the hospital.

"She reported it to her counselor," Zander said.

The suspect is a 17-year-old boy.

"We haven't interviewed the suspect yet. We're in the middle of interviewing the victim," Zander said.

The case remains under investigation.

And your conclusion is based on the mountain of evidence presented in this article? I certainly hope you aren't a potential juror since your mind has already been made up.

This is my problem with these comments, so many Law & Order and CSI experts making comments based on a few sentences in the newspaper.

Until there is actual evidence that an actual crime has been committed, this should not even be in the paper. Unless of course they are going to print an article if her story is proved to be false, which would never happen.

Agree that it is not news until they have the facts. However @truckin, it is people like you that really need a mental health evaluation. It is people like you that have created a culture of embarrassment for women that have been victimized. They feel too ashamed in many instances to tell right away because of the backlash and criticism of those who are supposed to support and stand by them. Of course I am not an idiot and do realize there are times accusations have been falsely made, and that is why there needs to be an investigation before you give your two sense.

"My two cents" (2ยข) and its longer version "put my two cents in" is a United States (US) idiomatic expression,[1] taken from the original English idiom expression: to put in "my two pennies worth" or "my two-penn'orth."

Again, a non story, which happened or didn't happen, and no physical evidence.

Why print this crap ? I guess the headline "rape" and "sex" to get more hits on this site or what? Which most of the time turns out to be a false story ,anyway.

It does become fodder Because so many girls to cry wolf and lie about it. Sad, but true. Which in turn gives the real victims of rape a bad name.

Like I said "Why" print it before it is proven?
