Days After Release From Prison, Brock Turner Officially Registers as a Sex Offender
The 21-year-old looked puzzled as he filled out the paperwork.
Brock Turner, the Stanford University swimmer who served only three months for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman, registered as a sex offender Tuesday in his native state of Ohio.
The 21-year-old was accompanied by his mother as he entered the Greene County Sheriff’s office to fill out paperwork. His mom used her sweater to prevent news cameras from capturing her son's face.
Turner, wearing sunglasses, made no comment to reporters.
He was released Friday from the Santa Clara County Jail in California after serving less than half of his six-month sentence.
His punishment for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman outside of a campus party was widely criticized as being too lenient. He had faced up to 14 years in prison for the January 2015 assault on the elite university’s campus in Northern California.
Protesters greeted Turner’s family outside their home following his release. Some were armed.
Turner must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
