Former Stanford Swimmer Brock Turner Files Appeal in Sex Assault Case

MAGS OUT NO SALES MANDATORY CREDIT

Brock Turner, who served just three months in prison after being convicted a year ago of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman behind a dumpster in January 2015, filed a motion in court Friday to have his conviction overturned.

Now, however, his lawyers have launched a campaign to have those convictions overturned, filing a motion that calls his 2016 trial "a detailed and lengthy set of lies".

The attorneys say they hope a new trial will help overturn Turner's mandatory lifetime requirement to register as a sex offender.

California Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky is now fighting a recall effort being led by activists outraged by the six-month sentence.

Brock Turner has appealed to have his sexual assault conviction overturned.

The interest, which was recorded Friday, guarantees that Turner was denied of due process and charges prosecutorial unfortunate behavior as reasons he ought to get another trial, The Mercury News announced.

In the second round, Ali appeared to stagger Cotto momentarily with an overhand right. "They could have taken an easier fight". Cotto continued to apply pressure in the seventh, but said that "something happened" to his left biceps in the round.

Turner was charged after two Stanford graduate students witnessed the assault taking place in January 2015 while they were riding bicycles near Stanford.

As well as focusing on the victim's alcohol intake, the key to Turner's request for a new trial is the statement the prosecutor was said to have made repeatedly during the trial, saying the assault occurred "behind the dumpster".

The appeal said the use of the term dumpster "implied moral depravity, callousness and culpability on the appellant's part because of the inherent connotations of filth, garbage, detritus and criminal activity frequently generally associated with dumpsters".

"What we are saying is that what happened is not a crime", John Tompkins, Turner's legal adviser, told KNTV. "It happened, but it was not anywhere close to a crime". Turner was released from prison in September 2016, and has been free ever since.

Stanford law professor Michele Dauber, who is leading the recall effort, said the evidence against Turner was overwhelming.

His victim told the court that she had woken up hours after the attack with dried blood on her hands and no memory of meeting Turner or being taken to hospital. "It's not appropriate for the court of appeals to step in and retry those facts".
