Brock Turner, the former Stanford University student and swimmer convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious and intoxicated woman in 2015, is expected to be released from the Santa Clara County Jail this Friday, September 2, after serving only half of his six-month sentence.And, one time-zone to the east:
A University of Colorado student convicted of sexually assaulting an intoxicated woman will not have to serve a prison sentence, a judge ruled on Wednesday with a decision that has sparked outrage from victims’ advocates and closely resembles the case of Stanford swimmer Brock Turner.As I have said before, if these clowns were Dwayne from the 'hood, they'd each be doing ten-plus years in their respective state pens.
A jury convicted Austin James Wilkerson, 22, of sexually assaulting a “helpless” woman on 15 March 2014 when prosecutors say he “isolated and raped the half-conscious victim” after he had told his friends at a St Patrick’s Day celebration that he was going to take care of her.
Rape is a crime of violence. But as we've seen before, if you're a white with a good legal team, you're not going to do much time for your crime. Hell, even Robert Durst got to allegedly whack a number of people without being convicted (yet).
