Appeal denied. Brock Turner is still a rapist and must register as a sex offender despite his status as a privileged white man
A Brock Turner Refresher
In 2015, Brock Turner sexually assaulted an unconscious woman by a dumpster at Stanford University. Her rescuers, two Swedish graduate students, were so sickened by what they found that one of them vomited.
Her victim’s impact statement went viral and the Stanford Victim Letter is a must a read for parents who want to raise decent human beings.
But just as disgusting as what Brock Turner did that night, was the non-punishment of his crimes.
He was found guilty, and the prosecutors recommended a sentence of six years of prison (maximum allowed was fourteen).
In an unprecedented move, judge Aaron Persky sentenced Brock Turner to six months in county jail (NOT a prison) and three years of probation.
What a joke.
With No Surprise, Brock Turner Appealed Conviction
It shocked no one that the remorseful young man appealed his conviction.
Brock Turner’s lawyer argued that the conviction should be overturned because Brock Turner was clothed and engaging in sexual outercourse and didn’t intend on raping the young lady.
You have to love Justice Franklin Elia’s response to that one,
I don’t understand what you are talking about
And neither does anyone else.
The truth is that Brock Turner appealed his conviction on the grounds that he is a wealthy, white male.
In our country, men like Brock Turner don’t get convicted.
They also don’t spend time in jail or prison.
And they certainly don’t register as a sex offender for the rest of their life.
Judge Persky knows this. It is evident by the lenient sentence he gave Brock Turner.
Brock’s mom knows it. She wrote this in her letter to the judge asking for leniency,
I beg of you, please don’t send him to jail/prison. Look at him. He won’t survive it.
I added the emphasis because it says it all right there.
Look at him. He is a white male. He doesn’t deserve a prison sentence.
Brock’s dad knows it too. He wrote this in his letter to the judge,
Brock can do so many positive things as a contributor to society and is totally committed to educating other college-age students about the dangers of alcohol consumption and sexual promiscuity. By having people like Brock educate others on college campuses is how society can begin to break the cycle of binge drinking and its unfortunate results.
I would love for his dad to explain how Brock will work “sexual outercourse” into educating others.
Open Letter to Brock Turner
You need to get a clue.
You are not the victim here.
Put away your Privileged White Male Card and take responsibility for your actions.
Admit you did the crime.
Accept your punishment.
Then go out and contribute something positive to this world
