Rhinaman has counsel, won’t see a judge until June 16

Updated: Tuesday, August 19 2014, 10:38 AM EDT
STEUBENVILLE, Ohio -- William Rhinaman, the former director of technology for Steubenville City Schools who was indicted by a special grand jury investigating the teen rape case in November, was also in court Tuesday, mainly to find out when his next scheduled appearance is.
Rhinaman faces charges of tampering with evidence, obstructing justice, obstructing official business and perjury in the rape case.
On Tuesday, Rhinaman was appointed a new attorney after Neil Rubin withdrew when he learned Rhinaman didn’t have the money to pay him. It pushed Rhinaman’s next court appearance back until June 16 for a pre-trial status conference. That will be nearly six months later than originally scheduled.
Rhinaman, the first of six indicted by the special grand jury, was originally set to have his final pretrial Jan. 28 and his trial was scheduled for Feb 24.
When he does make it back in front of a judge, Rhinaman will be represented by Jerry McHenry from Pickerington, Ohio, who has been appointed his attorney.
