brock turner jail release

Protesters waited for Brock Turner, the former Stanford student and star swimmer convicted of sexual assault of an unconscious woman, at his home after he was released from jail Friday morning.

The protesters stood in front of his parent’s Sugarcreek Township, Ohio home carrying signs that read “Castrate rapists,” and, “If I rape Brock will I only do 3 months?” Buzzfeed News reported.

Some protesters were armed, and menacing threats, such as “Shoot your local rapist” and “We don’t forgive, we don’t forget, expect us!!!" were written in chalk, The San Francisco Chronicle reported.



Turner was sentenced to six months in jail in June. His September release means he left the Santa Clara County jail three months early for good behavior, as online records showed could happen from the start. Inmates in California often serve only partial sentences, based on a variety of factors including behavior.

As of Tuesday, Turner appeared as a sex offender in the The Ohio Attorney General’s online registry. He will also need to check in with Ohio police every three months for as long as he lives in the county.

Turner was found guilty of three felony counts for sexually assaulting an unconscious and intoxicated woman in January 2015.
