Woman charged with theft in Steubenville rape case


COLUMBUS -- Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced today that a second indictment has been issued by a special grand jury investigating whether other crimes were committed related to the Steubenville rape case.

Hannah Rhinaman, 20, of Mingo Junction has been indicted on counts of receiving stolen property and grand theft, both felonies.

She is the daughter of Steubenville City Schools' technology director William Rhinaman, 53, who also was indicted Oct. 7 on counts of tampering with evidence, perjury and obstructing justice and a count of obstructing official business.

Ms. Rhinaman was an employee of Steubenville City Schools when the alleged actions took place, according to a press release from the AG's office. The accusations are separate and unrelated to the previous indictment issued against her father.

If convicted on all counts, Ms. Rhinaman could be sentenced to up to three years in prison.

The grand jury adjourned today until a future date that has not been announced.
