Ohio school workers' hearing set after rape case

Steubenville, Ohio — A court hearing could provide details of allegations against school workers charged with lying and interfering with investigators following the rape of a 16-year-old girl by two eastern Ohio high school football players.

Six current or former workers at the Steubenville school district were scheduled to appear before a judge in Jefferson County court Friday.

A grand jury has indicted five of the workers on charges including lying, tampering with evidence and obstructing justice following the rape of the West Virginia girl in August 2012. Among them is the area's top school official, Steubenville superintendent Mike McVey. McVey's attorney, Charles Bean, says McVey will fight the charges.

McVey and two other employees charged last month have been placed on leave. A fourth individual was a volunteer football coach.

The investigation included crimes committed in connection with the case against two members of the Steubenville High School football team as well as a separate alleged rape that happened in April 2012, four months before the assault that drew nationwide attention over demands that prosecutors should have charged more players.
