Stanford Rapist’s Father Argues Son Only Got 20 Minutes of Action

Last Thursday, 20-year-old Stanford University varsity swimmer turned rapist Brock Turner was sentenced to six months in county jail and three years probation. Turner was convicted of raping a woman at a frat party behind a dumpster. While both were intoxicated, the woman was unconscious and therefore couldn’t give her consent despite Brock alleging she did. The verdict came down after the victim, Emily Doe, read a moving 12 page statement.

“You took away my worth, my privacy, my energy, my time, my intimacy, my confidence, my own voice, until today,” she read. “The damage is done, no one can undo it. And now we both have a choice. We can let this destroy us, I can remain angry and hurt and you can be in denial, or we can face it head on, I accept the pain, you accept the punishment, and we move on.”

You can read the rest of the statement here.

After the verdict, Turner’s father, Dan, wrote a letter opposing his son’s sentence arguing at most he should get probation. The letter, posted on Twitter by Stanford law professor Michele Dauber, is not a good look.

Dan starts off describing what Brock was like as a child and how amazing he is at swimming. He then starts digging a massive hole writing about how completely unfair the ruling is considering this rape was only “20 minutes of action out of his 20 plus years of life.” Unable to grasp the irony, he goes into how the trial has taken away Brock’s spirit and consumed him “with worry, anxiety, fear and depression.” The entire cringe-worthy letter can be read online here.

Here’s a tip. If your kid is convicted of raping someone and goes as far as making up some farfetched convoluted story that destroys any doubt and erodes every iota of sympathy that the public could muster for him, don’t attempt to help him with a letter that indignantly declares they only raped the person for 20 minutes and then go on to paint your kid as a victim too. At the very least, get someone to proofread it about 20 times because, hopefully, on the 15th reading, you’ll realize that sending the letter would be a fantastically terrible idea.

Sincerely.
