(REUTERS) A school employee was arrested Monday on charges he hindered the investigation into the rape of a drunk teenage girl in Steubenville, Ohio by two high school football players who were ultimately convicted.

The case drew national attention to the town, 40 miles west of Pittsburgh, after a photo and video that appeared to document the assault of the 16-year-old girl in a drunken stupor at a party were posted online.

A grand jury indicted William Rhinaman, 53, the district’s director of technology, with perjury, obstruction with justice and tampering with evidence charges. He was also indicted for obstructing official business, a misdemeanor.
