COLUMBUS -- A grand jury reviewing whether additional charges should be filed in the Steubenville football rape investigation has issued its first indictment.

The grand jury indicted, William Rhinaman, 53, of Mingo Junction on counts of tampering with evidence, obstructing justice, obstructing official business and perjury.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says the charges against Rhinaman are related to his position as an employee of Steubenville City Schools in information technology.

"This is the first indictment in an ongoing grand jury investigation. Our goal remains to uncover the truth, and our investigation continues," said DeWine.

Two Steubenville football players were convicted in March of raping a West Virginia girl during an alcohol-fueled party in August of 2012.

DeWine did not give specifics about the allegations against Rhinaman.
