Brock Turner was found guilty of rape but spent only three months in jail, having been sentenced to a mere six. The outrage over the light sentence, he could have served 14 years in prison, was widespread and the outcry became even greater after the young woman wrote a victim impact statement that was widely circulated by the media.
