STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) — An eastern Ohio grand jury is meeting for the third straight day as it investigates whether other laws were broken in the rape of a 16-year-old West Virginia girl last year.

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

The panel reconvening Wednesday also met Monday and Tuesday.

A judge convicted two Steubenville High School football players of raping the West Virginia girl in August 2012.

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