A spokesperson for Attorney General Mike DeWine said the allegation in the second report dates back to April 2012 and no one has been charged.
Neither the attorney general's office nor Steubenville police are commenting on the details of the allegation, including if it involves teens or has any link to another case in which two 16-year-old Steubenville High School football players have been charged.
Approached by MailOnline the family of this latest ‘victim’ declined to comment. Her step-father explained: ‘We’ve been advised by our lawyer not to say anything.' He agreed that, ‘anything involving Big Red football players is hot right now,’ adding ‘that’s the problem.’
The girl is being advised by Bob Fitzsimmons, attorney for the 16-year-old girl at the centre of the Ohio rape case currently.
Her story appears to bear troubling similarities to the case currently scandalizing America in which the victim was allegedly raped while unconscious as others looked on, filmed and photographed events.
MailOnline has been told that the alleged incident took place at a Prom party at a Steubenville High School student’s home where alcohol was being consumed.
When questioned about a complaint ‘strikingly similar to the current rape case,’ Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla confirmed: ‘That particular case, the mother brought her daughter in to tell us about something that allegedly happened in the City of Steubenville. So we sent them to the City of Steubenville police.’
When pressed as to whether or not any paperwork existed relating to the case the Sheriff said: ‘We may have a report that she came in but we wouldn’t have started any investigation because it wasn’t our investigation to start.’
He said: ‘The last I heard the girl had recanted and said it was consensual.’
In fact mother and daughter went to the City Police Department and the girl, who was 14 at the time of the alleged incident, in early September. The girl went onto provide a video statement.
The city's police chief William McCafferty said: ‘We handed this over to the Ohio Attorney General’s Bureau for Criminal Investigations (BCI).’
Nor is it known whether the details of this investigation will have any bearing on their February trial.
The 14-year-old victim in this case planned to attend a party and she knew there would be boys and alcohol present. Things escalated out of hand very quickly. A tweet posted before the party stated that she was being dropped off at a friend's house by her mother, who told her daughter "If you are going to tap it, wrap it." After the incident, the girl expressed dismay on Twitter over what happened, and asked that people don't judge her because it could have been them. At first, the alleged victim's friends defended and stood up for her, but then turned their backs. A resulting hashtag includes the victim's name and the phrase #TeamWeHate___ resulted. A few weeks later the alleged victim had "made up" with some of her friends.
