Brock Turner’s Mom Says She’s Too Sad Over Rape Case To Decorate New House
No one in Brock Turner’s immediate family believed he deserved jail time after he was convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman on Stanford’s campus.
The letter by Turner’s father, Dan Turner, to Judge Aaron Persky was leaked earlier this week. In it, he says his son doesn’t deserve to go to jail for “20 minutes of action.” The sentiment is also shared by Brock Turner’s mother, sister and grandparents. An aunt also wrote asking for leniency, but she did not specifically ask for no jail time.
Turner was convicted on three counts of sexual assault in March. Two Stanford graduate students testified that they were riding bikes on campus when they saw Turner thrusting his body against an unconscious woman behind a dumpster. They said they had to chase Turner when he tried to run away and hold him down until law enforcement arrived.
Turner’s mother, Carleen Turner, wrote a letter nearly four pages long and doesn’t mention the victim of the sexual assault once. Instead, she talks about her son’s childhood, how he asked a high school girlfriend to prom and his swimming and academic career for two pages. She then talks about how devastated she and her family has been since the weekend in January when Turner sexually assaulted a 23-year-old woman.
“My first thought upon wakening every morning is ‘this isn’t real, this can’t be real. Why him? Why HIM? WHY? WHY?’ ” Carleen Turner wrote. “I have cried every single day since Jan. 18.”
YOUR SON IS A RAPIST, MA’AM!!! SIT ALL THE WAY DOWN!!!!!!!!
