With rape trial over, Ohio city remains under scrutiny
STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) — The ordeal of an eastern Ohio community roiled by allegations of rape against two high school football players is far from over, despite the teens’ conviction for the crime and their sentence to juvenile prison terms.
The announcement of the verdict was barely an hour old Sunday when state Attorney General Mike DeWine said he was continuing his investigation and would consider charges against anyone who failed to speak up after the attack last summer, a group that could include other teens, parents, coaches and school officials.
A grand jury will meet in mid-April to consider evidence gathered by investigators from dozens of interviews, including with the football team’s 27 coaches.
