Superintendent, 3 Others Charged In Steubenville Probe

A school superintendent and three more people have been charged by a grand jury that investigated whether other laws were broken in the rape of a 16-year-old girl by two Steubenville high school football players. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced the charges Monday morning in Steubenville. The Steubenville superintendent faces the most serious charges, including obstructing justice. A principal, a strength coach and a volunteer coach also are charged. They're accused of interfering with the investigation or failing to report possible abuse of a minor.
