STEUBENVILLE, OH (WOIO) -

A grand jury is reconvening in Steubenville today. They are renewing their investigation into the rape of a 16-year old girl last August. The purpose is to see if any other laws were broken.

Among the issues, whether any adults knew of the incident, but failed to report it.

The panel has not met since May 24.

Back in March a judge convicted two high school football players, Trent Mays and Ma'lik Richmond, of raping the West Virginia girl after an alcohol-fueled party last summer.

Mays received a minimum of two years in juvenile lock up, while Richmond received a minimum of one year in juvenile detention.
