Two high school football players in Torrington, Connecticut, have been charged with sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl, who is now a target of bullying.

FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports:

Two members of the high school football team in Torrington Connecticut are charged with sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl, who's become a target in recent weeks on social networking sites by other dozens of other classmates who've called the girl disparaging names and criticized her for snitching and for ruining the lives of the two 18-year-olds now charged with assaulting her.

Both Edgar Gonzalez and Joan Toribio have plead not guilty. And like the recent case in Ohio, some residents are now questioning the culture within the high school, its athletic programs and football team.
