This is peak white privilege right here.
Brock Turner was caught red handed raping an unconscious woman and then he laughed about it. He got a slap on the wrist because the judge was close with the family.
Instead of trying to be a good person for the rest of his life, Turner wants his conviction overturned.
Turner was sentenced to six months in June after he was found guilty of three felony counts of sexual assault, over a January 2015 incident in which he was found assaulting an unconscious 22-year-old woman outside a fraternity house. Turner was released in September after serving only three months in jail.
The former swimmer is now appealing his conviction and asking for a new trial. In a 172-page brief filed on Friday, Turner’s lawyers objected to the prosecutor’s description of the the assault as happening “behind the dumpster”, which mischaracterized Turner’s behavior and “implied moral depravity, callousness and culpability,” CNN reports. The brief also argued that the trial excluded character witnesses who could have testified about Turner’s academic and athletic accomplishments, according to the New York Times.
This is guy is serious, he wants his conviction overturned because he was a good student. Like I said, peak white privilege.
