Administrator accused of destroying evidece related to Steubenville rape case

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio -- The defense attorney for the embattled superintendent of the Steubenville City Schools has been granted a final continuation for the administrator's upcoming trial.

Suspended Superintendent Michael McVey was scheduled to appear for trial on August 18. On Monday, McVey's attorney, Charles Bean, requested a continuance to allow more time to analyze evidence associated with the case. Bean argued that experts would not be able to evaluate approximately 30 terabytes of data in the three-week time frame normally allowed.

Prosecutor Scott Longo concurred, and added that the defense worked with the prosecution's forensics specialist and coordinated the transfer of media and hard drives.

Judge Patricia Cosgrove accepted the motion to postpone the trial until October 14, but said this is the last time she will grant an extension.

McVey is accused of deleting computer information during the rape investigation involving two Steubenville High School football players. He faces charges of obstructing justice, tampering with evidence, obstructing official business and falsification.
