STEUBENVILLE, OHIO- A former volunteer assistant high school football coach got jail time in connection with the infamous Steubenville rape case where two players assaulted a girl at a party and posted the attack to social media.

Matthew Belardine got ten-days behind bars for serving alcohol to minors.

He pleaded no contest to the misdemeanors and was also ordered to serve 40 hours of community service and pay a one-thousand dollar fine.

Belardine hosted the party in 2012 the football players and a 16-year-old girl attended.

Ma'lik Richmond and Trenton Mays were found guilty of rape last year.
