STEUBENVILLE -- Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says a second indictment been issued in the special grand jury reviewing whether additional crimes were committed regarding the Steubenville teen rape case.

Hannah M. Rhinaman, 20, of Mingo Junction, was indicted by the grand jury on the following counts:

  • two counts of receiving stolen property, a fifth degree felony
  • one count of grand theft, a fifth degree felony

The charges against Hannah Rhinaman are related to incidents that occurred at Steubenville City Schools.

However, DeWine says the charges are separate and unrelated to the previous indictment issued against her father, William Rhinaman, on Oct. 7.

The grand jury indicted William Rhinaman, 53, also of Mingo Junction, on counts of tampering with evidence, obstructing justice, obstructing official business and perjury.

DeWine says the charges against Rhinaman are related to his position as an employee of Steubenville City Schools in information technology.

Two Steubenville football players were convicted in March of raping a West Virginia girl during an alcohol-fueled party in August, 2012.

If convicted on all counts, Hannah Rhinaman could be sentenced to up to three years in prison. The grand jury adjourned Wednesday until a future date to be determined.
