Convicted Rapist Brock Turner Loses His Appeal, Still A Convicted Rapist

Convicted rapist Brock Turner has lost the appeal case he hoped would stop people from labeling him as a convicted rapist. You might remember his outrageous “outercourse” argument, which suggested he shouldn’t have been convicted of “assault with intent to commit rape of an intoxicated or unconscious person, sexual penetration of an intoxicated person and sexual penetration of an unconscious person,” because he never intended to rape the unconscious woman he’d dragged behind a dumpster, he only intended to dry-hump her. Thankfully, even in the madness that is 2018, The California Court of Appeals wasn’t buying it.

The opinion reads in part:

Defendant contends evidence that he was fully clothed and engaged in forms of sexual conduct other than intercourse—namely, “fingering” and “dry humping”—negate an inference of intent to rape. We are not persuaded. While it is true that defendant did not expose himself, he was interrupted. Jurors reasonably could have inferred from the evidence described above that, if the graduate students had not stopped defendant, he would have exposed himself and raped (her).

By “interrupted” the court means Turner was confronted by two graduate students, who stumbled upon him and his unnamed victim. The eyewitness identified in court documents only as “Peter J.” approached and yelled at Turner, “”[w]hat the fuck are you doing? She’s unconscious.” At this point, Turner ran. Then, “Peter chased, tackled, and sat on defendant to restrain him. Peter testified that defendant smiled and tried to get free.” These grad students restrained Turner and tended to his victim for ten minutes until the arrival of campus police.

Convicted rapist Brock Turner only served three months of an already insultingly short six-month sentence, but he will remain a registered sex offender for the rest of his life.
