SENTENCED TO 6 MONTHS
Earlier this year, the whole nation (and world) was shocked at the lenient sentence received by Stanford student Brock Turner. Turner was charged for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman behind a dumpster. Outraged by the lenient decision of only 6 months, masses have petitioned for the removal of the judge Aaron Persky who delivered the sentence. Persky opted for the lighter punishment as he reasons that a heavier penalty would have a severe impact on Turner.
BROCK TURNER SERVES ONLY 3 MONTHS
However, what’s initially outrageous turns into unbelievably absurd. It turns out Turner need only serve half of the already short sentence, which puts that to 3 months. Santa Clara County’s Department of Corrections recently announced on its website that Turner will be released this Friday, 2nd September. As unbelievable and outrageous as it sounds, sources are actively reaching out to confirm Brock Turner’s early release. Reports state that many inmates were being released early due to overcrowding in jails. Early releases were also granted on the basis of good behaviour.
THIS IS NOT TURNER’S FIRST ARREST
In his statement for the Stanford rape case, Turner said, “Before this happened, I never had any trouble with law enforcement and I plan on maintaining that.” New evidence suggests this is not Turner’s first arrest case, despite the Stanford student blaming it on party culture.
