In the wake of rapist Brock Turner's six-month prison sentence and the infuriating and revolting letter that his father wrote requesting a lenient sentence for Turner's "20 minutes of action," fury has now turned to another letter, this one from a friend of Turner's.

Once again, the Internet has Michele Dauber, a Stanford law professor, to thank for publicizing this letter and reminding people that since she's there (and, certainly, countless others like her), Stanford—where Turner was a freshman until he was expelled—isn't a complete cesspool of inhumanity. 

After some delay, Turner's mugshot was released by the Santa Clara Sheriff's Department.

This letter was written by Leslie Rasmussen​, a 20-year-old female friend of Turner's, to the judge in the case, according to Think Progress
