Stanford swimmer Brock Turner found guilty of sexual assault


A former Stanford athlete was found guilty Wednesday of sexually assaulting an unconscious intoxicated woman outside an on-campus fraternity party in a case that helped increase pressure on colleges nationwide to do more to prevent assaults and punish offenders.

Brock Turner, 20, was convicted of three felony charges: assault with intent to commit rape of an intoxicated woman, sexually penetrating an intoxicated person with a foreign object and sexually penetrating an unconscious person with a foreign object.

District Attorney Jeff Rosen said the case helps make the distinction clear between consensual sex and sexual assault.

“Drunk means no,” Rosen said. “Passed out means no.”
