People in Washington and across the nation are watching as four school employees could face charges after a grand jury indictment on Nov. 25 in the Steubenville rape case. The indictment was not specific about the criminal charges against the school superintendent, an assistant football coach, a strength coach and the grade-school principal in the case. However, the adults are accused of either obstructing the investigation or failure to report child abuse, along with other charges. In October, the school technology director was also charged with obstruction of justice. The grand jury has finished their indictments in the case unless additional evidence is uncovered.
The Ohio Attorney General observed that if the students were going to be held accountable in the rape of a 16-year-old high school student by two members of the football team, the adults should be as well. He explained that the adults weren't concerned about what happened to the teen who was violated but were focused on other things.
