STEUBENVILLE, OH (WOIO) -

Retired Summit County Judge Patricia Cosgrove has been appointed by Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor to oversee the work of a grand jury looking into new charges related to the rape of a 16-year-old Steubenville girl.

The appointment was made at the request of Jefferson County judge Frank Bruzzese.

Judge Bruzzese asked that an outside judge be appointed due to all the backlash the city has received concerning the alleged cover-up that took place during the first rape investigation.

The Ohio Supreme Court made the appointment Thursday. 

Earlier this week Steubenville High School football players Trent Mays and Ma' lik Richmond were found guilty for the rape of a 16-year old girl.

Mays received a minimum of two years in juvenile lock up while Richmond received a minimum of one year in juvenile detention. Both will also have to register as sex offenders when they're released.

Two teenage girls, ages 15 and 16, were also arrested on menacing charges for threatening the victim in the recent Steubenville rape trial.

The threats were made via social media.

The Ohio Supreme Court meets in April.
