A hearing has been scheduled for a former high school football player found delinquent in the rape of a 16-year-old girl that could lead to a lower sex-offender status.   
    
Trent Mays was released in January after serving a two-year sentence in an Ohio Department of Youth Services facility. He currently is required to register as a sex offender every six months for the next 20 years.
    
Judge Thomas Lipps scheduled a Sept. 25 hearing in Jefferson County Court in Steubenville to consider a less restrictive status.
    
Last year, Lipps eased the same requirements for Mays’s co-defendant to registering once a year for the next decade.

The 19-year-old Mays was also found delinquent of using his phone to take a photo of the nude victim.
