Stanford rapist Brock Turner released from jail after three months

Brock Turner, the former Stanford swimmer who was convicted of sexual assault for raping an unconscious woman on campus, was released from jail on Friday after serving just three months of his six-month sentence.

Turner was charged with three felonies for his actions, but the legal system displayed a gross miscarriage of justice when it came to his light sentence.

Turner was released from Santa Clara County Jail around 6 a.m.

Now released from jail, Turner will undergo three years of probation as a registered sex offender while entering a sex offender management program.

“Even if Brock Turner only spends a limited amount of time in custody, being on probation or parole is not like being free in society,” said University of Massachusetts Lowell associate professor Jason Rydberg, via CNN.com. “You are monitored and your movements are controlled.”

None of that will make up for the crime he committed and the lack of severity his punishment carried.
