A special grand jury has indicted 53-year-old William Rhinaman on three felonies and a misdemeanor: tampering with evidence, perjury, obstructing justice and obstructing official business.  

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine formed the grand jury in March, after two high school football players were convicted in juvenile court of raping an inebriated 16-year-old girl during a series of parties in 2012. The assaults were captured on social media, but many of the images quickly disappeared.

National protestors descended on Steubenville, claiming adults – including school officials -- had covered up because of the special status of football in this fading steel town.

Rhinaman is to be arraigned Wednesday afternoon. Neither he nor other school officials could be reached for comment.

Attorney General DeWine says the grand jury investigation continues.
