COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A judge plans to classify as sex offenders two Ohio high school football players convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl last year.

Judge Thomas Lipps scheduled next week’s hearing as a possible first step for the two teen defendants to be transferred from a state juvenile detention center to a facility that works with sex offenders.

Lipps must classify the defendants to one of three sex offender levels, with the strictest requiring reporting every three months for life and the most lenient requiring annual reporting for 10 years.

Lipps sentenced Trent Mays and Ma’Lik Richmond in March to time in the juvenile detention system after convicting them of raping the West Virginia girl after an August party celebrating a successful football team scrimmage.
