2 girls charged with using social media to threaten accuser in Ohio rape case

A day after two high school football players were convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl, authorities have arrested two Ohio girls suspected of making social media threats against the accuser.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said the girls arrested Monday posted threatening Facebook and Twitter comments on Sunday, the day the players were convicted in Steubenville (STOO'-behn-vihl). The girls are being held in juvenile detention on allegations of aggravated menacing.

A judge sentenced the players to at least a year in juvenile prison. A grand jury will look into whether others broke the law by not speaking up after the attack last summer. That group could include other teens, parents, school officials and coaches for the high school's beloved football team, which has won nine state championships.
