He also said or an attorney said that Grand Jurys are hokie. They could indict a ham sandwich if they wanted to. No judge, just the prosecutor and the jury. The prosecutor could make (like they said) a ham sandwich look suspicious and show probable cause.Maybe it is hokie

According to the local voice of Wheeling Radio; DeWine is wasting time and money investigating what probably will be just a bunch of misdemeanors.

Does anyone else feel that way?

Is there an interest as to whether the school and its personnel are guilty of not reporting or covering up?

Is anyone interested in where the alcohol come from; or does everyone already know and don't care?

Does anyone feel like this investigation is just a cover up just to say, well, we looked and found nothing?

Are we really expecting anyone in the school to be let go because of a misdemeanor?

I am just asking. Maybe this radio man is right.

Although there could be jail time or large fines; first time offenders usually go free.

Let's put all of this into a proper context. DeWine called for a grand jury after the trial. With all the uproar over this case and all the drinking that led up to the events that happened and all the so called evidence that was brought out time was of the essence. 7 months after the events a grand jury was called for. That should be enough time to bury evidence. One has to think prosecutors gave enough time to help their friends.

Who would be the major players here in this investigation?

1. Others who may have participated? 2. Those contributing to the delinquency of minors? (However you define contributing) 3. Those who knew and did no0t report? 4. How about those who knew and covered up info?

Since nothing is off the table:

Are we talking about other incidents? Other crimes? All of Steubenville?

It leaves a lot to one's imagination.

A two week delay seems crazy, but maybe they found a lot of evidence to process.

Let's face it if everyone in the area came forward with one bit of information; it might take a while to interview them.

You are not correct in your assumptions. Good sources advise that they found PLENTY OF DAMNING EVIDENCE in the computer hard drives they confiscated. Although some was thought erased, the entire backup files were subpoeaned from the Medina Ohio storage facility...THEY FOUND PLENTY THERE! To make it worse, they now know that it was not reported and attempted to erase it. Also, FYI, a grand jury is not restricted to only this can look into any/all criminal conduct. If Steubenville lawyers were running it, it would be over; however, we have a good, honest prosecutor in DeWine. Also, dont forget, the grand jury members are not necessarily from Steubenville but from ALL OVER THE COUNTY.......they will have no love lost for the high and mighty big red rape machine.
