Steubenville School Employee Arrested

Charged with perjury, obstruction of justice.

An employee of the high school in Steubenville, Ohio was arrested and charged on Tuesday with perjury, obstruction of justice, and tampering with evidence in the infamous rape case that thrust the town into the spotlight. William Rhinaman, 53, is the school’s district director of technology, and is the first adult in the school charged. It’s unknown if more people will be charged after the massive grand-jury investigation into whether school employees knew about the rape allegation but failed to report it. A judge found Trent Mays, 17, and Ma’Lik Richmond, 16, delinquent in the sexual assault the 16-year-old girl, who was reportedly so drunk she couldn’t move. The assault first came to the attention of police when a video turned up online.
