COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — 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 panel in Steubenville was scheduled to start up Thursday after a three-week break while investigators went back to analyzing evidence and interviewing witnesses.
The grand jury had met just three days before the adjournment was announced earlier this month.
One of the key issues before the panel is whether adults like coaches or school administrators knew of the rape allegation but failed to report it as required by Ohio law.
A judge in March convicted the football players of raping the girl in separate incidents after an alcohol-fueled party in August.
