A school superintendent and three others have been charged by a grand jury that investigated whether other laws were broken in the rape of a 16-year-old West Virginia girl last year in eastern Ohio.

The grand jury had investigated whether coaches or school administrators knew of the rape allegation but failed to report it.

The superintendent in Steubenville faces the most serious charges, including obstructing justice.

A principal, a strength coach and a volunteer coach are accused of interfering with the investigation or failing to report possible abuse of a minor.

A judge convicted two Steubenville football players of raping the girl.
