COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An eastern Ohio grand jury plans to reconvene to hear evidence of other laws broken in the rape of a 16-year-old West Virginia girl last year.

Among issues being investigated by the Steubenville panel Monday is whether adults like teachers or coaches knew of the rape but failed to report it as required by state law.

The grand jury previously charged the Steubenville city schools' information technology director with tampering with evidence, obstructing justice, obstructing official business and perjury.

The panel also has indicted the technology director's daughter on theft and receiving stolen property charges unrelated to the rape case.

Attorney General Mike DeWine convened the grand jury March 17, the day a judge convicted two Steubenville High School football players of raping the West Virginia girl in August 2012.
