Charges dropped for two in Steubenville rape case

Written by 


CLEVELAND (AP) - Charges have been dropped against two Steubenville Schools employees as part of an investigation into whether other laws were broken in the rape of a 16-year-old West Virginia girl by two former high school football players.

Wrestling coach Seth Fluharty had been accused of failing to report the August 2012 rape. Elementary principal Lynnett Gorman had been accused of failing to report a teen sex and drinking party in April 2012 unrelated to the rape.

The state attorney general's office confirmed Wednesday misdemeanor charges of failure to report child abuse or neglect were dropped June 20 after Fluharty and Gorman met conditions of a deal requiring them to perform volunteer work.

The rape case drew attention amid allegations of a cover-up to protect the celebrated Steubenville High School football team.
