(WPXI) An Ohio school superintendent, two coaches and a principal have been charged by a grand jury that investigated whether other laws were broken in the rape of a drunken 16-year-old girl by two Stuebenville football players, the state's attorney general said Monday.
The special grand jury convened in Steubenville had investigated whether adults like coaches or school administrators knew of the rape allegation but failed to report it as required by state law.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said the case initially was about the teenagers involved but had become just as much about the adults, including the parents.
"How do you hold kids accountable if you don't hold the adults accountable?" he said. "That's what this is about. It's about holding adults accountable."
