Brock Turner to be released after 3 months in prison


Brock Turner is scheduled to be getting out of jail this week, three months early.Turner was sentenced to 6 months, following a conviction of three counts of sexual assault on the Stanford University campus.

Recently released documents from the case show that Turner admitted tolaughing out loud when confronted by bystanders, mid-rape.

“I noticed that he was smiling. So I said, ‘Why are you smiling? Stop smiling,’” testified Peter Jonsson, one of two Stanford grad students who approached Turner and intervened while he was on top of an unconscious woman outside of a frat house.

In court papers, Turner doesn’t deny giggling as he lifted his prone body off of his victim.

“I was laughing at the situation of how ridiculous it was,” he testified, according to the documents.
