More investigation
The grand jury is considering whether charges should be brought against more individuals than the two local high school football players convicted in March of raping a 16-year-old girl during a night of partying and underage drinking. The attack happened a year ago this week and social media accounts of it quickly went viral. 

AG asked for panel
In April, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine asked the Jefferson County Common Pleas Court to convene the panel.  It has scheduled meeting intermittently since.  Including this week. Dewine said six witnesses were called Monday, seven were set for Tuesday and there may be some testimony Wednesday.  But he says:  "I do not expect the Grand Jury to return any indictments this week."

Failure to report
Among other things, investigators are looking for evidence that adults who were legally obligated to report the crime failed to do so.

The teens convicted in the case, Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richmond, ages 16 and 17, were sentenced to remain in juvenile custody until their respective 21st birthdays.
