4 More Charged After Ohio Teen Athletes’ Rape Case
STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's attorney general says you can't hold teenagers responsible if you don't also hold adults responsible.
Mike DeWine announced today the indictment of a school superintendent in Steubenville, along with an elementary school principal and two coaches, in connection with the rape of a drunken 16-year-old girl by two football players.
A grand jury had investigated whether school officials knew of the rape allegation but failed to report it.
The superintendent is facing felony counts of obstructing justice.
The others are accused of interfering with the investigation or failing to report possible abuse of a minor.
A judge convicted two Steubenville football players of raping the girl in August 2012.
