Charge Being Dropped Against Steubenville Elementary Principal

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- An eastern Ohio elementary school official charged following an investigation into the rape of a 16-year-old girl has resolved her case without a trial.
  
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says Steubenville elementary school principal Lynnett Gorman will perform community service related to rape awareness in lieu of prosecution.
  
DeWine said Wednesday that a misdemeanor charge of failing to report child abuse or neglect will be dropped in June if Gorman completes her service.
  
A message was left with Gorman's attorney, Dennis McNamara. He has said Gorman was accused of failing to report a teen sex and drinking party in April 2012 unrelated to the rape of the West Virginia girl later that year.
  
McNamara says Gorman learned about the party second- or third-hand.
