The Guardian has obtained the statement that persuaded Judge Aaron Persky (see about recalling him here!) to sentence Stanford rapist Brock Turner to only six months despite the fact that 12 jurors unanimously found him guilty of committing three felonies the night he raped an unconscious woman behind a dumpster. In the end, Turner will likely serve around three months, largely thanks to this statement in which he continues to display his ignorance, and despite the powerful letter his victim wrote.
