Ohio rape investigation grand jury resumes work

COLUMBUS, OH (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.

1 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.
