Wow. Brock "I Should've Gotten More Jail Time" Turner made himself out to be a naïve, clean-cut young man in his trial for the sexual assault of an unconscious woman behind a Dumpster on the Stanford University campus.
In a letter pleading for leniency from Judge Aaron "I Should Give Rapists More Jail Time" Persky, Turner asserts that he had no prior experience with heavy drinking and drugs. That statement proved to be false when the prosecutor submitted texts and photos found on Turner's phone to the contrary.
On top of that, documents released on Friday by the Santa Clara County Superior Court and the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office show that he also TEXTED PICTURES OF HIS UNCONSCIOUS VICTIM'S BREASTS TO HIS FRIENDS. Because that's just the kind of "aw shucks" thing a good, respectable boy like Brock would do, right?
One of the documents includes information from Blake Bolton, one of the witnesses in the case. Bolton clearly saw Turner standing over the unconscious woman with his cell phone. What else would he have been doing, if not taking a picture of her? Quick game of Candy Crush? Maybe Googling, "how to not rape an unconscious woman behind a dumpster"? Probably not.
That document reads:
. . . between Kappa Alpha and Jerry House. He also noticed a male subject standing over her with a cell phone. He was holding the cell phone. The cell phone had a bright light pointed in the direction of the female, using either a flashlight app in his phone or its built in flash. He approached this subject and asked if everything was okay The male subject did not say anything to (W) BOLTON. He told the male subject to roll her over on her side to breath [sic]. The male subject did not do this. (W) BOLTON then got down on his knees and checked her pulse. When he got back up, the male subject was gone.
Another document explains the police trying, but failing, to locate the actual picture Turner had taken, after noticing that his phone was receiving responses to a message sent through the Group Me app.
The document reads in full:
Cell Phone Extraction: Shortly after the Defendant's arrest in the early morning hours of January 18, 2015, Detectives noticed a text message in the "Group Me" application that appeared on the Defendant's screen. It stated, "Who's tits are those?" (See Exhibit Four: photos of screenshot.) A search warrant for the Defendant's phone was obtained and his phone was searched by the Santa Clara County Crime lab. Detectives were unable to locate the text from the "Group me" application or any photos related to that text. However, they learned that when there is a third party application, the images are not stored on the phone and can be deleted by a third party member in the group.
Judge Aaron Persky gave Turner a six-month sentence, as opposed to the six year sentence the prosecutors recommended, saying that he took Turner "at his word." That seems a little gullible for, y'know, a judge. Aren't the chances pretty good that in all his years as a judge, he's come across one, maybe even two people who've lied in court?
