AG DeWine: 20-year-old Hannah Rhinaman charged with grand theft


STEUBENVILLE, Ohio -- The grand jury charged with investigating whether other crimes were committed in connection with the now-infamous Steubenville rape case have issued a second indictment.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced on Wednesday morning that 20-year-old Hannah Rhinaman of Mingo Junction has been charged with two counts of receiving stolen property (F5) and one count of grand theft (F5). Rhinaman is accused of stealing equipment from the Steubenville City Schools and selling it.
DeWine says the indictment issued by the grand jury Wednesday has nothing to do with the rape case the panel is investigating. He stated that it's not uncommon for grand juries investigating one set of allegations to come across unrelated crimes. The charges are also separate and unrelated to the previous indictment issued against her father, William Rhinaman, on October 7.
If convicted on all counts, Hannah Rhinaman could be sentenced to up to three years in prison.
Attorney General Mike DeWine convened the 14-member panel earlier this year to investigate whether adults, such as coaches or school administrators, knew of the allegation but failed to report it as required by state law. The grand jury adjourned on Wednesday until a future date, to be determined.
