Stanford Rape Case: Attorney Says Charges Could Be Hard To Prove


A former star swimmer at Stanford University pleaded not guilty today to five counts of sexual assault for allegedly raping a drunk and unconscious woman outside an on-campus fraternity party last month, prosecutors said.

Brock Allen Turner, 19, was charged last week with five felony counts of sexual assault. Deputies allegedly found him pinned by two good Samaritans who encountered him on top of the woman outside the Kappa Alpha house at 664 Lomita Court on Jan. 18, according to a report by Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office.

If convicted of the charges, Turner could face a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, district attorney’s spokesman Sean Webby said today.
