Brock Turner Loses Court Appeal

Trigger Warning

 

Brock Turner, who sexually assaulted an unconscious woman outside a frat party in 2015, lost his appeal.

He served 3 months in jail after being convicted of assault with intent to commit rape. Not only did this sentencing cause national outrage, it also sparked a recall campaign of the judge, who many believed was far too lenient.

This conviction also required Turner to register as a sex offender for life - which his attorneys appealed. They argued that he was only guilty of "sexual outercourse," due to the fact that his pants were on the whole time he committed the assault.

The California Court of Appeals denied his case.

While prosecutors asked for a six-year sentence in the case, the Judge only ordered him to serve six months...Turner got out after three months due to the jail being "overcrowded."
