Superior court judge Aaron Persky has been recalled for giving what was considered a very lenient sentence to Brock Turner who was a student at the time. He was convicted of raping a fellow student while she was intoxicated. The judge is defending his sentence as just and that this only causes a judge to ask themselves what will public opinion be vs what’s the right thing to do based on the law?
I remember a thread on this back when it happened and I thought the judge’s decision was very inappropriate. It looks like his constituents did too. What say you?
