Someone doesn't think Stanford Rape Judge Aaron Persky can be impartial... can you believe it?

In a horrific twist of irony, Stanford Rape Judge Aaron Persky (that's officially his name forever) was assigned to preside over an upcoming preliminary hearing of a male nurse accused of sexually assaulting a woman under anesthesia. That's another sexual assault case where where the victim was unconscious.

Stanford Rapist Brock Turner got only six months in county jail for his crimes, which will be reduced to three for good behavior.

Two in one month? It's almost as if we live in a society where predators think they can sexually assault someone while unconscious and get away with it.

Fortunately, Stanford Rape Judge Aaron Persky was pulled from the docket. As confirmed by BuzzFeed News, Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeffrey Rosen asked for a reassignment because he "questioned the judge’s ability to be fair."

Hand out a ridiculously lenient sentence to a convicted rapist once, shame on you. Hand out a ridiculously lenient sentence to a convicted rapist twice, shame on the legal system.
