Brock Turner, the former Stanford swimmer who was sentenced to just six months in prison after sexually assaulting an unconscious woman, is set to be released three months early on Friday, September 2. The Dayton Daily News reports Turner will return to his parents' house in Ohio to serve his probation, instead of staying in California.
The transfer was agreed upon by both Turner and California authorities, and, according to the Daily News, Turner's victim expressed her desire for him to leave the state during his trial earlier this year because he "makes her nervous."
Turner is expected to be released in "daylight hours" Friday, and both Ohio and California police are monitoring social media for threats to his safety. In Ohio, he will be required to register as a sex offender within five days of being transferred. As previously reported, Turner will also have to undergo drug and alcohol counseling during his probation.
The New York Times reports Turner's lenient sentence and early release have prompted Californians to rally for harsher penalties in cases like these, moving forward. The bill passed the California Assembly earlier this week, and now rests with Gov. Jerry Brown.
