Hundred of community members rallied over the weekend in support of the victim of a rape allegedly committed by two members of the Steubenville High School football team.

Saturday's "Occupy Steubenville" rally was the second of its kind.

Hundreds gathered outside the city hall.

The alleged rape took place in August and ignited a fire storm, most recently after an activist group posted a video of an uncharged juvenile joking about the assault.

Two sophomore players have been charged in connection with the incident.

Their trials are set for February 13 in juvenile court.
