Despite a popular petition to recall him from his position, which received over 250,000 signatures, Judge Aaron Persky is still on the bench after his infamously lenient sentence for fellow Stanford-educated white guy, Brock Turner.

Despite being removed from a sexual assault case against a male nurse, the judge is making headlines again for handing down a sentence in another sexual assault case—the implication being that he's treating an immigrant from El Salvador with less mercy than he did Brock Turner. The defendant is a Latino man named Paul Ramirez, who he sentenced to three years in prison for his assault on his roommate. In contrast, Turner was sentenced to six months, and he'll likely be released after three months on good behavior.
