Stanford rapist Brock Turner to be let out of jail this Friday after serving only half his sentence
Brock Turner, the Stanford student who was convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious intoxicated woman, is due to be released from jail this coming Friday.
Business Insider notes that Turner’s scheduled release date is on September 2, which means that he will likely have spent only three months in prison after being found guilty of three counts of sexual assault.
Turner is due to be let out early for good behavior while in prison, which means that he’ll have only served half of his original six-month sentence.
Judge Aaron Persky, who delivered Turner’s original sentence, has come under heavy criticism for giving the convicted rapist what amounts to a slap on the wrist for sexual assault. A petition to remove Persky from the bench attracted well over 100,000 signatures earlier this summer, and a report late last week claimed that the judge will no longer oversee criminal trials.
