Brock Turner case: State lawmakers sign on to effort to remove judge


A dozen state lawmakers have signed on to the effort to “investigate and take action against” the judge who handed down a six-month sentence to a man convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious, intoxicated young woman outside a Stanford fraternity party.

The lawmakers sent letters out Friday morning to the Commission on Judicial Performance in San Francisco as well as Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen. The letter to the commission requests a review of Judge Aaron Persky’s performance, stating that the sentencing of 20-year-old Brock Turner “shows bias and undermines public faith in the judicial system.”
