Ex-Stanford Swimmer Convicted Of Rape Denied New Trial

(Stanford, CA-AP) – The former Stanford University swimmer convicted of sexual assault will not get a new trial. An appeals court refused to overturn Brock Turner’s conviction, ruling that he did receive a fair trial.

He was convicted of assaulting another student while she was unconscious outside a frat party. A judge gave Turner a light, six month sentence even though prosecutors pushed for a long prison term. He ended up serving three months before being released.
