Ohio AG announces more indictments in Steubenville rape case

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio — The Steubenville superintendent of schools was indicted by a special grand jury in connection with the 2012 rape of a West Virginia teenager.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced the indictments of Superintendent Michael McVey, 50, and two other school district workers Monday. McVey allegedly interfered with the rape investigation and allegedly falsified and tampered with evidence.

Steubenville High wrestling coach Seth Fluharty, 26, and West Elementary School Principal Lynnett Gorman, 40, both were indicted for failure to report child abuse or neglect. A volunteer football coach was also indicted on several misdemeanor charges.

DeWine convened the special grand jury the day after two former Steubenville High football players were convicted in the assault of the 16-year-old girl. The crime happened after a team scrimmage at a drinking party in August 2012. The crime and the alleged cover-up have made national headlines.

DeWine also said Monday he believes the grand jury’s work is done after it met for a total of 18 days.
