Defense attorney Walter Madison explains why he withdrew his motion to have the rape trial of his client closed to the public, after a hearing on Friday, Jan. 25, 2013, at Jefferson County Juvenile Court in Steubenville, Ohio. Richmond said moving the trial would satisfy the concerns he has about a fair trial for his client, one of two high school football players charged with raping a 16-year-old girl last summer.
