Stanford Rapist Brock Turner

An appeals court has rejected  Stanford University rapist Brock Turner’s bid for a new trial and upheld his sexual assault and attempted rape convictions.

That’s good news.

The three-judge panel of the 6th District Court of Appeal in San Jose ruled that there was “substantial evidence” that Brock Turner received a fair trial.

In 2016, a jury convicted Turner of sexually assaulting an intoxicated and unconscious woman outside an on-campus fraternity party.

During Turner’s trial, feckless Judge Aaron Persky rejected a prosecutor’s demand for a lengthy prison term and instead sentenced Turner to six months in jail. He was released from jail in September 2016 after serving three months.

Voters correctly recalled Persky in June.
