ORIGINAL STORY:

The Grand Jury in the Steubenville rape case has adjourned until June 17, according to Attorney General Mike Dewine.

Dewine says interviews and analysis of electronic evidence will continue during the break.

The grand jury is examining whether other laws were broken in the case of a teenage girl raped by two high school football players.

One of the key issues before the jury is whether adults such as coaches or school administrators knew of the rape allegation but failed to report it.
