“The Stanford swimmer whose light sentence after a sexual assault conviction had both his appeal and request for a new trial denied.
The latest legal step in the controversial case of Brock Turner came Wednesday when his appeal to have his convictions overturned was rejected by a California appeallate court on Wednesday.
In an earlier hearing about the appeal, Turner’s attorney argued that since his client was clothed during the assault, Turner participated in “outercourse” rather than intercourse.
The latest decision rejecting the appeal, which was written by a panel of three judges, affirms the decision to convict Turner on three counts: sexual penetration of an unconscious person, sexual penetration of an intoxicated person, and assault with intent to commit rape. The decision details Turner’s arguments against each conviction, along with the rebuttals from the appellate judges.”
