A sheriff in Maryville, Missouri expects up to 2,000 people to show up for a protest later today that was organized on behalf of a girl who says she was sexually assaulted when she was 14.  

The case in Nodaway County has drawn national attention, leading to the appointment of a special prosecutor.

Sheriff Darren White says the county is placing portable restrooms on Maryville's courthouse square and is taking other measures to accommodate those who attend the rally set for 6 o'clock this evening.

At least two activist groups have called for a protest of the county prosecutor's decision to drop charges against a boy accused in the January 2012 sexual assault of Daisy Coleman.  

The prosecutor says a lack of cooperation by the victim led to the charges being dropped.  The Coleman's refute that claim.

MARYVILLE, Mo. (AP) - Officials in a northwest Missouri county whose prosecutor is under fire for his handling of a teen sexual assault case are planning to close county offices Tuesday because of a planned rally related to the case.

Nodaway County Clerk Beth Walker says the courthouse and county administrative building are being closed. Walker says law enforcement officers will maintain some kind of presence around the buildings during the rally.

At least two activist groups, including one called "Justice for Daisy," have called for the protest, which is to begin at 6 p.m.

Daisy Coleman says she was 14 in January 2012 when a 17-year-old Maryville boy gave her alcohol and had sex with her when she was incapacitated. Felony charges against the boy and a second 17-year-old were dropped months later.
