Members of Stanford Women’s Swim Team Not Surprised by Brock Turner Arrest


Members of the Stanford University women’s swim team are saying they were not surprised by Brock Turner’s arrest, according to a report.

One swimmer was quoted as calling Turner “very, very odd” and claims he made crude comments to her teammates about their bodies, according to InTouch Magazine.

“Brock’s arrest wasn’t surprising to anyone on the team,” one woman told the magazine.

Turner, 20, was a member of the Stanford men’s team until his rape conviction earlier this month, when he was removed from the team. He has also been banned for life by USA Swimming.

Meanwhile, the powerful letter written by Brock’s unidentified 23-year-old victim was read aloud in congress Wednesday.

An hour passed as the 19 members of congress, Democrats and Republicans, took turns reading the entire 7,000 word plea.

Turner got just six months after being convicted of sexual assault. He’s expected to be released three months early, on September 2. The sentence has led to outrage.
