Charges Dropped Against Ohio School Principal
The case of an eastern Ohio elementary school official charged following an investigation into the rape of a 16-year-old girl in 2012 has been resolved without a trial.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said Steubenville elementary school principal Lynnett Gorman will perform community service related to rape awareness in lieu of prosecution.
DeWine said Wednesday that a misdemeanor charge of failing to report child abuse or neglect will be dropped in June if Gorman completes her service.
A message was left with Gorman’s attorney, Dennis McNamara, who has said Gorman was accused of failing to report a teen sex and drinking party in April 2012 unrelated to the rape of the West Virginia girl.
McNamara said Gorman learned about the party second- or third-hand.
