Resolution Reached in Steubenville Case

by Nichole Hannahs on April 11, 2014

 The Ohio Attorney General’s Office said that a resolution has been reached in the case of a Steubenville High School wrestling coach. 

The Attorney General said Seth Fluharty will need to perform 20 hours of community service for the ALIVE shelter or other approved facility in the Steubenville area and attend a training session for Steubenville City Schools provided by the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence to provide school staff with an overview of sexual assault and teach them how to co-facilitate the "Stand Up" program. 

If he successfully completes terms of the agreement the misdemeanor charges against him would be dismissed. 

Fluharty was indicted by a grand jury for failing to report child abuse or neglect. His is the third case to be resolved among the six individuals indicted by the special grand jury. 

Matthew Belardine and William Rhinaman, who were also indicted, have court appearances scheduled for April 22.
