School Superintendent Indicted in Steubenville Rape Case

A grand jury has indicted the Steubenville schools superintendent on charges that he obstructed an investigation into the rape of a drunk teen girl at a party last year, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said on Monday.

The grand jury also has indicted an elementary school principal, a wrestling coach and a volunteer assistant coach for the Steubenville football team, DeWine said, adding that the grand jury's work was finished, barring new evidence.

Superintendent Michael McVey, 50, was indicted on two counts of obstructing justice and one count of evidence tampering, all felonies, and misdemeanor counts of making false statements and obstructing official business, DeWine said.
