Woman charged with theft in Ohio school rape case

Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An eastern Ohio grand jury has charged a woman with receiving stolen property and theft in its investigation into whether other laws were broken in the rape of a 16-year-old girl.

Attorney General Mike DeWine says the charges against 20-year-old Hannah Rhinaman, of Mingo Junction, are related to things that happened at Steubenville City Schools.

DeWine says the indictment issued Wednesday is separate from the indictment earlier this month of Rhinaman's father.

William Rhinaman, the city schools' technology director, has pleaded not guilty to charges of tampering with evidence, obstructing justice, obstructing official business and perjury.

It is unclear if Hannah Rhinaman has an attorney. Her phone was not working Wednesday.

In March, a judge convicted two Steubenville football players of raping the West Virginia girl after a night of drinking.
