The judge who gave a six month slap on the wrist-jail sentence to privileged and affluent Stanford University student Brock Turner, who got convicted of raping an unconscious woman.
California law makers finally heard the cry for justice and the California Assembly passed a measure 66-0, that requires a mandatory prison sentence for anyone convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious or intoxicated person.
Assemblyman Bill Dodd, one of the bill’s Author stated: “Sexually assaulting an unconscious or intoxicated victim is a terrible crime and our laws need to reflect that.”
For additional information use link below :
We the people would like to petition that Judge Aaron Persky be removed from his Judicial position for the lenient sentence he allowed in the Brock Turner rape case. Despite a unanimous guilty verdict, three felony convictions, the objections of 250 Stanford students, Jeff Rosen the district attorney for Santa Clara, as well as the deputy district attorney who likened Turner to ” a predator searching for prey” Judge Persky allowed the lenient sentence suggested by the probation department. Turner has shown no remorse and plans to attempt to overturn his conviction. Judge Persky failed to see that the fact that Brock Turner is a white male star athlete at a prestigious university does not entitle him to leniency. He also failed to send the message that sexual assault is against the law regardless of social class, race, gender or other factors. Please help rectify this travesty to justice. ****PLEASE NOTE: This Petition is an effort to force Impeachment hearings for Judge Perksy By the California Assembly. It is not a recall effort.******
