Activists and California lawmakers held a protest in San Francisco calling for the removal of Judge Aaron Persky from the bench after his controversial sentencing in the Stanford rape case on Friday.

A group of California lawmakers joined women's rights advocates Friday in urging a California agency to take action against the judge who sentenced a former Stanford University swimmer to six months in jail for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman.
