Judge Who Sentenced Brock Turner Is Recalled By CA Voters

In a win for anyone who wants justice for victims of sexual assault, the judge who sentenced Stanford swimmer Brock Turner to just six months in prison for felony sexual assault was removed from his seat on the bench via a recall election.

Judge Aaron Persky was the first judge in California to be removed from office in 86 years.

Perskey sentenced Turner to just six months in jail, which ended up being three, and cited the fact that both parties had been drinking as something he considered, as though that were something that justifies or excuses sexual assault, or as though the victim being unconscious after drinking means she deserved it more.
