A.G. May Charge More Individuals In Steubenville Rape Case

Ohio's attorney general says he's still considering whether to bring charges against more students in the rape case of a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville.

Mike DeWine says he’ll make that announcement after the upcoming trial of two high school football players who have been charged.

DeWine: “We’re in the later stages of our overall investigation, where we are looking at not only what happened in that incident itself but also what happened afterwards.

At least three other students witnessed the encounter and still others apparently knew about it.

Hacker-activists and women’s advocacy groups have questioned why people who knew about the rape weren’t charged in accordance with an Ohio law that requires people to report any crimes of which they’re aware.

DeWine’s office told lawyers for three witnesses last fall that their clients wouldn’t be charged.  His office says investigators are now focused on what happened after the alleged assault.
