(STEUBENVILLE HERALD-STAR) — An eight-member jury is set to be seated Tuesday in Jefferson County Common Pleas Court for the trial of Lynnett Gorman, the Pugliese West Elementary School principal named in a one-count misdemeanor indictment regarding failure to report child abuse or neglect on April 12, 2012.

Because the charge is a misdemeanor, an eight-member jury is being seated instead of the 12-member juries that hear felony cases.

A special grand jury called by Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine investigating aspects of the Steubenville High School rape case returned the indictment against Gorman and three others in November.
