About a dozen demonstrators, some of them armed with guns, stood outside of convicted Stanford rapist Brock Turner's family home in OH on Saturday carrying signs condemning his release just one day after he was freed from serving three of his six months' sentence in a Santa Clara County jail. In June, Judge Aaron Persky sentenced Turner to six months for sexually assaulting an unconscous woman behind a fraternity house dumpster, arguing that a longer prison time would "severely impact" the 20-year old, at the time a promising athlete on the Stanford swim team. The brevity of Turner's sentence - six months, with eligibility to be released after three - sparked outrage against the judge and controversy over how the justice system treats sexual assault survivors.
