Former Ohio School Worker Pleads Guilty To Theft
A former school worker has pleaded guilty to stealing computer equipment in a case that arose from an investigation into an eastern Ohio rape.
Twenty-year-old Hannah Rhinaman of Mingo Junction pleaded guilty to receiving stolen property and grand theft Wednesday in Steubenville. The charges weren’t related to the rape of a West Virginia girl by two Steubenville football players but were turned up by a grand jury investigation into other laws broken in that case.
Rhinaman, accused of stealing and selling equipment, was deemed eligible for a diversion program because of drug dependency.
Her attorney, Steve Lamatrice, says he’s confident Rhinaman can avoid a traditional sentence by successfully completing a treatment program.
The grand jury also indicted the superintendent, two coaches and the technology director, who is Rhinaman’s father. They pleaded not guilty.
