Looks like this Stanford swimmer is getting a slap on the hand!
Reports are saying that A former Stanford University swimmer who was facing a 10-year jail sentence for raping a drunk woman he met at a campus party, has been given just six months in prison for his crime!! His name is Brock Allen Turner the 20 year old was found guilty of sexually assaulting a drunken and unconscious woman.
Mr. Turner who is part of Stanford’s high-powered swimming program was convicted in Santa Clara County Superior Court of three counts of sexual assault.According to the swimmer, the woman appeared to be enjoying herself as she rubbed his back.He added that his ‘intentions were not to try and rape the girl without her consent’ but to ‘hook up’ with a girl’, the report said.
But I don't understand how you go from 10 year sentence to just 6 months?! Not even at least a year?!?! Whoever his lawyer is must be one of the best because that has to take A LOT of convincing and fact to get your clintes sentence down like that! What are your thoughts great minds?
