Two Connecticut high school football players have been charged in a sexual assault case similar to the recent high-profile rape case in Ohio.

18-year-old Edgar Gonzalez and John Torbio of Torrington High School are charged with sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl.

They both pleaded not guilty.

The alleged victim was reportedly bullied on Twitter by fellow teens calling her a snitch.

Police say a third student has also been charged in the case.
