LOUISVILLE, Ky.-- A central Kentucky man says he's the target of a federal hacking investigation tied to an ongoing inquiry into the rape of a teenage girl in Steubenville.

Deric Loustetter, of Winchester, told The Associated Press on Tuesday he leaked documents related to the investigation.

Two Steubenville High School football players in Steubenville were sentenced to time in a juvenile detention facility after being convicted.

Last fall, bloggers and hacker activists filled cyberspace with allegations that not enough was being done to investigate the entire case.

In January, a 12-minute video that first appeared on YouTube after the rape and mocked the attack was reposted.

Loustetter says he didn't hack into the computer where the video was stored, only made the information public.

The FBI raided Loustetter's home in April.
