According to Brock Turner’s inmate details, he will be released on September 2, 2016, which means he will serve only 3 months of the measly 6-month sentence he was handed for his rape conviction.
Dubbed the “Stanford Rapist,” Turner was convicted in March of three counts of sexual assault in California’s Santa Clara County, after he was arrested for raping an unconscious woman behind a dumpster near the Stanford campus.
Public Information Officer Sgt. James Jensen told Mic the date that appears on the Santa Clara County’s Depart of Corrections website is indeed when the court has instructed officials to release Turner, although he could not say that the sentence has been formally shortened.
According to Mic, when asked if it’s possible that the release date could mean Brock will be moved to another corrections facility, Jensen said, “That would not be a possibility.”
“If it says he’s getting released on that date — unless there’s some special circumstance and he receives new criminal charges while in prison and were to be charged — that is the date of his release,” said Jensen.
