Former Stanford University swimmer Brock Turner raped an unconscious woman behind a dumpster, and despite there being plenty of evidence and two eye witnesses, the judge granted Turner a shockingly lenient sentence. Out of the fourteen possible years Turner could have gotten behind bars, he was only given six months in a county jail, because the Judge in the case feared that anything longer than that would have a "severe impact" on the convicted rapist. What was not mentioned was the "severe impact" that being raped would have on a victim for the rest of their life.
