STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) — An eastern Ohio grand jury investigating whether other crimes were broken in the case of a West Virginia girl raped last year has reconvened for at least two days.
A chief issue before the panel meeting in Steubenville is whether adults, such as coaches or school administrators, knew of the allegation but failed to report it as required by state law.
The 14-member grand jury met today and plans another meeting Tuesday.
Earlier this month, the grand jury charged the Steubenville schools’ technology director with tampering with evidence, obstructing justice, obstructing official business and perjury. He has pleaded not guilty.
Attorney General Mike DeWine announced the grand jury March 17, the day a judge convicted two Steubenville high school football players of raping the West Virginia girl in August 2012.
