Stanford Rapist Brock Turner: 'I Wish I Was Never Good at Swimming'

Stanford Rapist Brock Turner: 'I Wish I Was Never Good at Swimming'”

A letter that added fuel to the national outcry against a six-month sentence handed down to a former Stanford University student who was convicted of sexually assaulting a woman after a fraternity party a year ago has gone viral with additional edits from an outraged critic.

As part of his sentence, Brock Turner is required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. Persky, in his sentencing, said that he didn't think Turner's "lack of complete acquiescence to the verdict should count against him". Prison, as best I can tell, has a severe impact on everyone who goes to it. That's the point.

The 23-year-old sexual assault victim of Brock Turner might be the most famous anonymous person on the internet right now. Prosecutors had asked for six years - the maximum penalty is 14 years - but the pre-sentencing report recommended a lesser term.

So, it sent our debaters in a whirl: Was the six-month sentence justified and are we, as a nation, overreacting to a case we only know on the surface? Reuters reported California Sen.

Various colleagues of Persky praised the judge in response to the criticism.

"To be honest, I don't give a damn and if his victim was your daughter I'm quite sure you wouldn't either", John Pavlovitz wrote. "I was terrified of it", she wrote.

A letter by the victim read in the trial was revealed last week. Just like his father's letter to the judge, Turner erased Doe and the reason newspapers are writing about him: rape. While she agrees Brock is a rapist (which is good since he didn't), she could not help but argue that if the victim hadn't been drinking, none of this would have happened. "I had dried blood and bandages on the backs of my hands and elbow", said the victim.

Barbara Muller, a criminal defense attorney who works two weeks out of every month in Persky's court, said he was "one of the fairest judges" in the country, and that he "considers all facts and is very thorough". "We saw that she was not moving, while he was moving a lot", Arndt said, as translated from Swedish.

Owens had said in her reference letter that Turner was an "exceptional student" and "a young man of character" who is "absolutely undeserving of the outcome".

Her words had an impact far greater than she could have imagined. After her letter was posted online, millions read her story while urging others to do the same and push for justice.

"Her giving so many personal details, I could just feel the pain as she shared really, really, gruesome details", said Stanford student Kate Camara.

A petition to strip Persky of his judgeship has reached more than 400,000 signatures, while Leslie Rasmussen, a childhood friend of Turner, has also suffered the backlash after a statement in which she supports him was released. Persky ran for re-election in Santa Clara County on Tuesday, but he was unopposed on the ballot.
