Noon headlines: Jan. 13, 2013
New Browns coach; Witnesses won't be charged in Steubenville; Cleveland firm hit with 21 OSHA violations


 
  • New Browns coach
  • Witnesses won't be charged in Steubenville
  • Cleveland firm hit with 21 OSHA violations
  • Witnesses won't be charged in Steubenville case
    Ohio’s attorney general says at least three Steubenville high school football players will not be prosecuted in connection with an alleged rape of a 16-year old girl. Mike DeWine sent letters to the teen’s lawyers days before the three testified at a pretrial hearing against two teammates who have been charged in the alleged incident at a party last August. But DeWine said yesterday that his office had made no deal with any of the witnesses involved in the case. He said their involvement did not rise to criminal level. The case has received national attention ever since video of football players joking about the alleged incident was posted online.

    Local firm cited for 21 OSHA violations
    Cleveland Granite & Marble could be fined $98,000 for 21 health violations by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

    The citations stem from an inspection started last August, and three of them were labeled willful violations.  The charges range from failing to provide personal protective equipment to not training workers in safety and health matters. 

    New Browns coach
    Rob Chudzinski is back for his third tour with the Cleveland Browns, and this time he's calling the shots. Chudzinski, who spent the past two seasons as Carolina's offensive coordinator, was introduced as the club's sixth fulltime coach on Friday. The Plain Dealer's Terry Pluto says he'll inherit a young roster which could be developed into a contender. The 44-year-old previously worked as an assistant with the Browns, most recently as offensive coordinator in 2008. Chudzinski has no previous head coaching experience, but he's familiar with the Browns and their history. He rooted for the team while growing up in Toledo, Ohio. The Browns have lost at least 11 games in each of the past five seasons.

    Football Hall of Fame finalists
    The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton announced its class of 15 finalists from which the Enshrinees will be picked this Superbowl weekend.  Jerome Bettis, Bill Parcells, Andre Reed, Warren Sapp and Michael Strahan all made the cut, but so did Ohio natives Edward DeBartolo and Cris Carter along with former Browns owner Art Modell, who died last year at age 87.
