Your honor, if it is all right, for the majority of members of this declaration I would like to address the defendant directly.
With that sentence, the main victims of the notable Stanford University sexual assault case embarked a powerful letter she would read in court immediately to the man who was imprisoned of trying to assault her.
That man is 20 -year-old Brock Allen Turner, a former swimmer at Stanford, who left the school after being accused of sexually assaulting the status of women after a frat party.
According to The Guardian, Turner had been received “thrusting” on top of an unconsciouswoman behind a dumpster in January 2015 before two graduate students who were biking through campus discovered the vistum and intervened.
The pair of bikers supported Turner until police arrived, at which pointofficers obtained the status of women “completely unresponsive.”
This past week, Turner, who faced a maximum period of 14 times in jail, was sentenced to six months incounty prison and probation.
In what was an seeming picture of leniency by the court, Judge Aaron Perksy suggested,
A prison sentence would have a severe impact on him I think he will not be a threats to others.
Before the sentence was given, though, the status of women , now 23, addressed her attack on Thursday with a horrifying letter that went into graphic detail of how she was treated and how the ordeal traumatized her.
In her letter, the status of women suggested,
I had multiple swabs be incorporated in my vagina and anus, needles for kills, pills, had a Nikon parted right into my spread leg. I had long, parted beaks inside me and had my vagina smeared with cold, off-color colour to check for abrasions.
After a few hours of this, they let me shower. I stood there investigating my mas beneath the brook of liquid and chose, I don’t want my mas anymore. I was frightened of it, I didn’t know what had been in it, if it had been infected, who had touched it. I wanted to take off my mas like a casing and left open at the hospital with everything else.
There is no one quote that stands out the most from the harrowing and sobering letter because it is important in its entirety.
The woman’s letter plied a opening into the unenviable world of a carnal abuse victim and needed to be heighten attention to what is a severeproblem for colleges across the country.
You took away my merit, my privacy, my energy, my period, my refuge, my intimacy, my confidence, my own expres, until today.
The wholeof the letter, which is over 7,000 paroles, can be read in its entirety on BuzzFeed News.
