Trial set for superintendent after Ohio rape case

Posted: Updated:
STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) - A judge has set a trial date for an eastern Ohio school superintendent charged with trying to thwart investigations into alleged crimes, including the rape of a 16-year-old girl.

Steubenville Superintendent Mike McVey has pleaded not guilty to charges including obstructing justice and tampering with evidence.

Special judge Patricia Ann Cosgrove set an Oct. 18 trial date Tuesday for McVey in Jefferson County court.

McVey is accused of hampering the investigation of the West Virginia girl raped in August 2012 by two Steubenville high school football players, as well as an investigation into rumors of a teenage sex and drinking party in April 2012 unrelated to the later rape.

McVey is on paid administrative leave. A message was left with his attorney.
