Steubenville , Ohio

Four eastern Ohio school workers have entered not guilty pleas to charges stemming from a grand jury investigation into other alleged crimes spurred by the rape of a 16-year-old girl.

The four include the top Steubenville school official, whose attorney promised to fight the charges and prove them unfounded.

Special Judge Patricia Ann Cosgrove accepted the not-guilty pleas Friday in Jefferson County court and let the four remain free without bond.

Two other defendants, including Steubenville schools' former technology director, have previously pleaded not guilty and weren't present.

The attorney for defendant Lynnett Gorman, an elementary school principal, says his client is accused of failing to report information she heard about a sex and drinking party in April 2012 unrelated to the assault on the 16-year-old West Virginia girl.
