Stanford Swimmer Rapist Defended by Dad For “20 Minutes of Action”


Brock Turner’s father, Dan, has sparked outrage online after saying that his son should not have to go to prison for “20 minutes of action.” Brock Turner, a former swimmer at Stanford University, was convicted of three felonies for the sexual assault of an unconscious woman and was sentenced to six months’ imprisonment and probation. Dan wrote a letter in opposition of his son’s sentencing blaming it for his loss of appetite, only fueling more fire to the already controversial ruling. “Now he barely consumes any food and eats only to exist. These verdicts have broken and shattered him and our family in so many ways.” Turner is expected to spend only three months of his sentence because a judge felt the term length could have a “severe impact” on him. Elliot Hill and Margaret J. Howell take a closer look at Mr. Turner’s statement further on the Lip News.
