Court documents detail Steubenville superintendent's charges

Written by 

Destroying emails, covering up rape among the allegations


CLEVELAND (AP) - A newly released court document accuses a Jefferson County school superintendent of destroying emails and computer data and lying to investigators about his knowledge of rape allegations involving members of the high school's football team.

Prosecutors in November charged 51-year-old Michael McVey of Steubenville with felony counts of tampering with evidence and obstructing justice, and misdemeanor counts of falsification and obstructing official business. The Ohio attorney general's office says in a court document that McVey may have had someone wipe computer hard drives for him.

The document filed in Jefferson County court accuses McVey of misleading authorities about the school's investigation into the rape allegations and concealing knowledge about rumors of a teenage sex and drinking party four months earlier.

Messages seeking comment from his attorney Friday were not immediately returned.
