Thu., 4:27pm: Search warrants executed in Steubenville rape case

COLUMBUS -- Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says search warrants have been executed at the high school attended by two football players who raped a 16-year-old girl.

DeWine's office says in a statement that search warrants were also executed Thursday at the Steubenville school board offices and a northeast Ohio digital investigations company. It did not say what the searches turned up.

DeWine says judges in Jefferson and Medina counties sealed the search warrants.

The searches are related to evidence state investigators are gathering as part of a grand jury looking into whether other laws were broken in connection with the rape.

The 14-person grand jury was seated earlier this month and begins hearing from witnesses Tuesday in Steubenville.

A judge convicted the teens in March of raping the Weirton, W.Va., girl after an alcohol-fueled party last August.
