Father defends son convicted of sexual assault, said he shouldn't have to go to prison for '20 minutes of action'

Image
The father of a former Stanford University athlete convicted on multiple charges of sexual assault has said his son should not have to go to prison for "20 minutes of action". Brock Turner, a former swimmer at Stanford University was on Thursday, June 2 sentenced to six months’ imprisonment and probation for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman.


The 20 year old from Dayton, Ohio(pictured above)  who was convicted of three felonies, including assault with intent to rape – faced a maximum of 14 years in prison. But Turner was expected to spend only three months of a six-month sentence in county jail after the judge, Aaron Persky, said positive character references and lack of a criminal record had persuaded him to be more lenient. Prison would have a “severe impact on him”, the judge said. A decision that sparked anger on social media. 

The 23-year-old victim gave an emotional speech at the hearing, an abbreviated version of a 12-page impact statement submitted to Judge Pers…
