Charges have been dropped against two Steubenville school district employees as part of the investigation into whether other laws were broken in the rape of a 16-year-old girl by two high school football players.

Wrestling coach Seth Fluharty had been accused of failing to report the August 2012 rape. Elementary school principal Lynnett Gorman had been accused of failing to report a teen sex and drinking party in April 2012 unrelated to the rape. State authorities say misdemeanor charges of failure to report child abuse or neglect were dropped June 20 after the two met the conditions of a deal requiring them to perform volunteer work.
