Lostutter was instrumental in exposing the town-wide coverup of a 16-year-old’s rape by football players Trent Mays and Ma’Lik Richmond.
Lostutter would end up facing 10-years in prison for his actions, while Mays and Richmond were only sentenced to one.
He also tweeted a confirmation to the film, directing all comments to his lawyer.
