CLEVELAND (AP) — The superintendent of the eastern Ohio district where two high school football players were found guilty of rape in a high-profile case last year wiped computer hard drives, erased emails and lied to investigators about his knowledge of the allegations against the boys, newly released court documents say.

The filing Thursday came in the case against Steubenville superintendent Michael McVey, 51, who has pleaded not guilty to felony counts of tampering with evidence and obstructing justice, and misdemeanor counts of falsification and obstructing official business.

The charges stem from an investigation of McVey's actions after he learned of the allegations in 2012 made by a 16-year-old West Virginia girl against the two members of the storied Steubenville High football team, one of whom was the team's quarterback. The teens eventually were found guilty in juvenile court and were sent to youth detention centers and classified as sex offenders.

The case drew national attention in part because of the role of texting and social media in exposing the attack, which led to allegations that authorities were covering up the actions of football players.

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — A $12.3 billion water infrastructure bill that received final congressional approval Thursday will step up funding for improving ports and deepening sand-choked shipping channels in the Great Lakes region, supporters said.
The measure designates the lakes as a single navigational system for funding purposes, enabling the region to compete as one unit for money, instead of individual port communities being pitted against each other. It also requires the government to make greater use of an existing fund for maintaining deep-draft ports and waterways.
