- In January 2015, Stanford University freshman-swimmer Brock Turner was arrested after two graduate students found him on top of an unconscious woman outside a campus fraternity party. A jury later found Turner guilty of three sexual-assault felonies after a three-week trial in Palo Alto. Turner's eventual sentencing in 2016 -- six months in county jail and probation -- sparked uproar across the nation, particularly in the wake of the release of a wrenching victim impact statement written by the woman in the case.
