Steubenville rape investigation grand jury resumes work

COLUMBUS, Ohio - An eastern Ohio grand jury is resuming its examination of whether other laws were broken in the case of a 16-year-old girl raped by two high school football players.

The grand jury in Steubenville resumes work Thursday after a three-week break.

The panel is considering whether coaches or school administrators might have known of the allegations but not reported them as required by Ohio law.

The grand jury had met just three days before the adjournment was announced earlier this month.

A judge in March convicted the football players of raping the girl in separate incidents after an alcohol-fueled party in August.
