It’s the sentence we’ve all been waiting for.
Turner, who was convicted of raping an unconscious woman faced a minimal sentence of six months in jail, three months if he was on good behavior. Of course the victim, and rape victims across the world took offense at this minimal sentence. In fact, Brian Banks, a wrongfully convicted rising football star commented on the difference between his six year jail sentence and Turner’s six months. It was pretty brutal.
But now USA Swimming seems to have taken matters into their own hands, and have banned Brock Turner for life from the establishment. And that is the end of that.
Condolences and respects to the young woman who was victim to this crime. If you haven’t read her letter to the defendant, then please. Read it right away.
