Brock Turner: The Whole Story

Original post made by Truth, Please, Mountain View, on Jun 1, 2016

In today's Mercury News, the subject of Brock Turner's sentencing is discussed. It is worth noting what is mentioned in this article:

"In the prosecution's sentencing memo, however, deputy district attorney Alaleh Kianerci urged the judge to disregard the probation report in this case, which she reveals recommends up to six months in county jail. In her memo, she pointed out that Turner lied to probation officials about his history, saying he was an inexperienced drinker from a small town in Ohio, when text messages from his phone dating back to high school show he frequently used alcohol and drugs including marijuana and LSD."
