Ohio school workers' hearing set after rape caseDecember 12, 2013 @ 10:46 pm
STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) - A court hearing could provide details of allegations against school workers charged following an investigation prompted by the rape of a 16-year-old girl by two eastern Ohio high school football players.
Six current or former workers of the Steubenville school district are scheduled to appear before a judge in Jefferson County court Friday.
A grand jury has indicted five of the workers on charges including lying, tampering with evidence and obstructing justice following the rape of the West Virginia girl in August 2012.
A sixth employee faces theft and receiving stolen property charges related to alleged crimes uncovered during the grand jury investigation but unrelated to the rape case.
Among those charged is the area's top school official, Steubenville superintendent Mike McVey. His attorney says the charges will be contested.
