In Steubenville, Ohio, a sixteen-year-old girl was attending a local high school party with her friends. The girl was more intoxicated than others and refused to go home after the party was shut down. She then joined a group of guys who were going to another party and when they get there, the girl was too drunk to remember anything else. Two of the boys that were with her were Trent Mays and Malik Richmond. Both of them were football players at Steubenville High School, which was a big deal in small town Steubenville.
Brock Turner was a twenty Year old Stanford law student. He was on the all American swim team three years in a row and was riding on a swimming scholarship. To say the least he was a very bright young man who seemed to have an even brighter future ahead. That was all before he made the choice to sexually assault an unconscious and intoxicated female student.

On August 2012 Emma Sulkowicz reported to being raped in her college dorm, this sparked her senior thesis project called Carry That Weight ,where she would be carrying the mattress on which the assault had occurred and would be continuously doing so until Columbia either expelled the rapist or she graduated (Izadi, Elahe) . This case adds to the one third percentage of women who are assaulted by their senior year in college (Streng, Tara). Another unrelated case that occurred in Stanford was that of Brock Turner whom instead of being the victim was the alleged rapist, he was accused of assaulting an unconscious woman behind a dumpster and then being sentenced to only a six month jail sentences versus the maximum of fourteen years (Stack, Liam).
Aaron Persky, the judge in charge Brock Allen Turner’s rape case, should receive the consequences for giving the perpetrator a lenient sentence that was viewed as unfavorable to the public eye; but rather than have him forcefully removed, the judge should resign as a prosecutor for making a decision unworthy of a prosecutor. Instead of immediately losing his job for an unfair verdict, other factors should contribute to the severity of his punishment. However, it would be more favorable for Persky to relinquish his position as a judge than have his job taken away from him. It is shown through Turner’s case that Persky is likely to be an unqualified judge because his sentence for Turner was unbefitting of a legal prosecutor. His actions had caused
The M25 rapist was a serial rapist, who was found guilty of 10 rapes over a thirteen-month period along the M25 in England. The rapist raped females in an age range spanning from ten to fifty-two (Real Crime). The Detective Chief Inspector, Colin Murray stated this statement after the case was over, “This was one of the most harrowing and complex cases of my thirty-year career as an investigator. The actions of this evil man not only impacted on his victims destroying their lives, but also on the wider communities. Parents were afraid to let their young children out of their sight and many disrupted their daily routines to ensure they escorted their kids to and from school,” (KFS 2).
In 2015, Brock Turner, a student from Stanford, sexually assaulted a young woman on campus. Turner claimed that “his actions [were] the product of a culture of drinking, peer pressure and ‘sexual promiscuity’’ which led him to having 6 months in jail on Judge Persky’s ruling. The aftermath of the case, Stanford University, according to Erik Ortiz, “banned hard liquor at all on campus parties; [however], beer and wine are still allowed”, meaning that Stanford made minor changes to address future problems and had little action on the topic. College should focus on sexual assault on campus by enforcing punishment, passing more policies, and learning to ignore their image to reduce the number of rape cases on campus.
Chapter eight of my book talks about Sexual Assault. Rap, sexual abuse and assault happens more than we think and not just among women, however, men as well. The odds are that the person who abuses you is likely someone that you know. Many sexual abuse cases involving children is unreported as a result of being scared, ashamed, guilt or threatened, same goes for being raped or attempted rapes. There are several myths about rap in the manner that women provoke or wanted to be raped, cry rap to take revenge, women wanted it since they did not resist and many more. (James, 2008)
Was giving Brock Turner a six-month jail term a right thing to do? This question lingered in many people’s mind after The Stanford University rape case became a high-profile case. The case caused a national upheaval after the judge decided to give Brock Turner, the former Stanford University swimmer a 6-month jail sentence after sexually assaulting an unconscious woman. In addition, Turner was released after serving only three months in jail despite being found guilty. Turner was charged with the assault of “Emily Doe” while she was unconscious. The high-profile case upset many human rights activists, and the victim, her family. The Stanford University case has revealed the reason why many rape cases, especially on the campus remain unreported. Brock Turner deserved a longer sentence after being found guilty to show the world that justice can be served for sexual assault victims.
A case fueled with controversy and rage from the public, the Brock Turner case begins on a Saturday in January of 2015, with two Swedish college students on a bike ride by the Kappa Alpha Fraternity House, and according to a case summary by "Sports Illustrated", those two college students found Brock Turner, a Stanford Swimmer sexually assaulting a half naked, un-named 22 year old. Turner then attempted to flee the scene, and as the case summary states, the two Swedish students, Carl-Fredrik Arndt and Peter Jonsson, "chased him down and tackled him" (Lombardo, 2016). The police then showed up and arrested Turner, specifically, the Campus police.
Sexual assaults are often committed by someone a person knows. Instead of simply removing this person from all of the classes the victim and the offender have in common or trying to rearrange schedules so that they will not run into each other, more extreme measures need to be taken. Offenders need to know that there are serious consequences. Campuses must try to ensure that the offender goes to jail or is removed from the campus permanently so that victims do not have the constant worry of running into their offenders on campus. Besides just removing offenders, campuses need to be more open to students and raise awareness about the incidents that are occurring. More workshops and seminars need to be made available to provide students and even
The students four years after high school mark the moment in life where students become independent and free. Because of the freedom, college students are more suspectiblento impetuous actions like drinking, doing drugs, and even commuting sexual assault. Sexual assault on campus has been a huge topic that has been discussed in the country and “colleges have done little to stop violence in their campus” (Dick, Ziering). In 2015, Brock Turner, a student from Stanford, sexually assaulted a young woman on campus. Turner claimed that because he was drunk, was with friends, and saw a “promiscuous” female students, that pressured him to collimating such a heinous crime. This crime could 've been prevented if the students were taught about rape culture
Alcohol-related sexual assaults happen frequently within a college campus. Although sexual assault on campus has become a growing concern for the public, many of these sexual assaults go unreported so it is hard to know how severe of a problem it really is. Even though the majority of these sexual assaults are committed by acquaintances known to the victim many will be disciplined lightly or not at all by the university board. It is important to understand that sexual assault does not just mean rape, but also any sexual contact that involved force upon a person without that person’s consent. Based on the university’s alcohol policy on campus, I want to know if the environment created creates a setting where sexual assaults
There are many problems on college campuses and several go unnoticed. According to BestCollege.com, “one out of five college students experience some type of sexual assault during their college career”. Sexual assault is a term used to describe any type of unwanted sexual activity without the consent of a person (Sexual Assault). One out of five students being assaulted is a major issue in many ways. For example, being a victim of sexual assault can be very damaging for the rest of one’s life, whether it is mentally, emotionally, or physically. It is known to a number of people that sexual assaults are more likely to happen on college campuses than anywhere else. Due to the number of students that are enrolled in college, this is a huge problem that the nation needs to spend more time finding solutions. This topic is important to me because I am a young woman in college who lives on a college campus and it is a necessity
