Grand Jury Investigating Steubenville Rape Case Reconvenes

Posted: Updated:

The Grand Jury investigating the Steubenville teen rape case will reconvene Monday morning.

The panel will meet from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. They are expected to vote on Thursday and Friday.

So far, two people have been indicted as a result of the grand jury investigation. William Rhinaman, 53, was indicted back on October 7 by the Grand Jury. Jurors found evidence that Rhinaman allegedly altered, destroyed or removed information pertaining to the investigation.

He was previously employed as the former Steubenville Schools information technology director before he retired earlier this month. William Rhinaman has pled not guilty to the charges against him.

William's daughter Hannah, 20, was also indicted by the Grand Jury. The indictment against Hannah Rhinaman was handed down on October 23, but the charges are not related to the rape case.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said the panel charged Hannah Rhinaman after uncovering evidence that she stole equipment from Steubenville City Schools and sold it.

In a statement released by Superintendent Mike McVey, Hannah previously worked for the district in August and September of 2012, assisting the technology department with setting up computer labs and updating the software.

Hannah also entered a not guilty plea to the three counts against her and was released on a personal recognizance bond.

The pre-trial hearings for William and Hannah Rhinaman are set for December 6 at 11 a.m.

The Grand Jury will continue to investigate whether any laws were broken regarding the Steubenville Rape Case.
