STEUBEVILLE, OHIO —
An occupy rally was held on Saturday outside the Jefferson County courthouse in support of the victim in the high school rape scandal in nearby Steubenville, Ohio.
Organizers called on people to stand up and speak out in support for victims of abuse, violence and rape.
Earlier this week, a judge ruled that the trial for the suspects in the rape case will be open to the public.
The two high school football players are accused of raping a 16-year-old girl during an alcohol-fueled party back in August.
Some people, including the victim’s parents, wanted the trial to be held behind closed doors.
Several media outlets requested the case be open to assure a fair trial.
The trial is set to get under way in March.
