A grand jury investigating the 2012 rape of a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio, has indicted four school employees, including the school superintendent, who faces felony charges, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced Monday, reports CNN's Jean Cesarez.
Steubenville City Schools Superintendent Michael McVey faces three felony counts: one charge of tampering with evidence and two counts of obstructing justice. He also is charged with making a false statement and obstructing official business, both misdemeanors, DeWine said.
Also indicted was elementary school principal Lynnett Gorman and wrestling coach Seth Fluharty, both of whom are charged with misdemeanor failure to report child abuse. Volunteer assistant Steubenville football coach Matt Belardine was charged with four misdemeanors: allowing underage drinking, obstructing official business, making a false statement and contributing to the unruliness or delinquency of a child.
This brings to six the number of people the grand jury has indicted after two students were convicted of rape, DeWine said. A school technology director and his daughter were indicted in October.

It's undisputed that the roll out of Obamacare has been plagued with complications. But for Kate and Justin Leeper, it’s a lifeline.
Today they’re uninsured, reports CNN's Miguel Marquez , but come January 1st, that'll change.
Justin Leeper has a medical doctors can’t diagnose, which in the past prevented him from getting insured. “That was usually enough for them to say no we can't cover you,” he says.
So he and his wife logged on to Covered California, where 10,000 Californians now sign up daily, Marquez reports.
Kate Leeper says, “I didn't have to know a whole lot, I just put in our basic information, our social security numbers, our birthdates.
“The website, working as advertised, presented them 30 insurance options,” Marquez says. It will cost less than $500 for the both of them.
“Now waiting for their first bill, they say the real test for Obamacare… the day they'll need to use it.”
Meanwhile, 62-year-old self-employed handyman Tom Harris had high hopes for Obamacare, but those have since been dashed. (SEE VIDEO BELOW)
“Harris suffers from debilitating allergies. He's seeing a specialist, Dr. Robert Eitches at the prestigious Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, at least until January first, when his bill would go up," reports CNN’s Casey Wian.
But Eitches, and four of Harris' five doctors, are no longer in the network under the new Obamacare-compliant plan being offered by Harris's current health insurance company.
“Eitches says 10% of his patients now must either find new doctors, or pay steep out-of-pocket costs,” Wian reports.
“For Harris, Obamacare has meant fewer choices and headaches, untreatable by presidential apologies.”
