Ohio official says city backs inquiry

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The top official in an eastern Ohio city facing a broad criminal investigation following a girl’s rape says the community will support the inquiry.
Steubenville city manager Cathy Davison says the community wants to see justice done and will stand behind a grand jury announced by the Ohio attorney general, whose targets include numerous high school football coaches.
Davison tells The Associated Press the community’s heritage and moral fiber are more important than the football program, which has won multiple state championships and is big source of pride in Steubenville.
A judge on Sunday pronounced two high school football players guilty of raping the 16-year-old girl and sentenced them to a minimum of one year in juvenile prison.
Davison, in her first comments since the verdict, says the decision has helped the community.
