COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An eastern Ohio grand jury investigating whether other laws were broken in the rape of a 16-year-old girl is scheduled to begin work again.
One of the key issues before the panel in Steubenville is whether adults who are required to report crimes knew early on of the rape last August but didn't say anything.
The Office of Attorney General Mike DeWine said Tuesday that the grand jury will meet again July 8.
The panel last met May 24, then adjourned to give investigators time to gather more evidence.
A judge in March convicted two high school football players of raping the West Virginia girl after an alcohol-fueled party last summer.
