Ohio's attorney general says long-anticipated charges against adults implicated in the aftermath of a 16-year-old girl's rape offer the community a chance to begin putting the case behind it.

A grand jury on Monday charged a school superintendent and three others with lying or failing to report possible child abuse after an investigation prompted by the rape of the West Virginia girl by two high school football players.

Attorney General Mike DeWine says the message of the grand jury, which consists of local county residents, is that the community is rectifying the problem and holding people accountable.

The investigation included crimes committed in connection with the case against two members of the celebrated Steubenville High School football team as well as a separate alleged rape that happened in April 2012.
