Stanford Rape case
“The fact that defendant was engaging in a different sexual act at the time the encounter was interrupted (namely, ‘dry humping’) does not foreclose the inference that he intended, ultimately, to rape,” the judges wrote.
Santa Clara County voters cast their ballots in favor of recalling Aaron Persky, the Californian judge who sentenced Brock Turner to six months in jail.
California judge Aaron Persky has now been accused of handing down a lenient sentence to a sex offender who possessed more than 200 images of child abuse on his computer.
Public defenders say Aaron Persky isn't known for giving whites special treatment and that trying to recall judges who don't punish harshly is bad news for people of color.
