JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio – Steubenville High School volunteer football coach Matt Belardine is expected to plead no contest to charges that arose from the Steubenville teen rape investigation.
Attorney general spokesman Dan Tierney says Belardine is expected to plead no contest Tuesday in court to one count of making a false statement and one count of enabling underage drinking.
Authorities say Belardine's house was the scene of an underage drinking party that preceded the rape.
They also expect two counts of obstructing official business and contributing to the delinquency of a child will be dismissed.
