A grand jury meets to discuss other charges in Steubenville rape

Posted: Updated:
STEUBENVILLE, OH (WOIO) -

It's been confirmed that a grand jury in far eastern Ohio is meeting again to consider whether other crimes might have occurred in the rape of a 16-year-old West Virginia girl a year ago.

A spokesman for the Ohio Attorney General's office says the panel was reconvening Monday in Steubenville.

One of the key issues before the grand jury is whether the adults involved in the case failed to report crimes they were aware.

In March, a judge convicted the two high school football players of raping the girl.

Attorney General Mike DeWine has said nothing is off the table for the grand jury.

The panel had suspended its work for a break after meeting for two days in July.
