A resolution honoring Ohioan and Olympic athlete Jesse Owens has been approved by the U.S. Senate.
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.
