The former Stanford University swimmer convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman outside a campus fraternity party is now appealing his conviction. The page brief filed by Brock Turner's lawyers on Friday described the initial trial as "a detailed and lengthy set of lies," and requested a new trial. They hope this will overturn his mandatory lifetime requirement to register as a sex offender. Turner's lawyers are also blaming Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky for not ordering jurors to consider lesser criminal charges in their decisions and for excluding testimony from witnesses that might have convinced the jury that Turner was telling the truth when he claimed the sexual act was consensual.

I just finished my MA in Forensic Psychology at John Jay and started an internship in a new city… I spend most of my days hanging out with lovely people like rapists and pedophiles…. Jake had sent us an e-mail about his job. When we followed up with Jake by phone, he had a suggestion for an episode:. I agree with Jake. As disturbing as this topic may be to some people, I agree that the economics of being a sex offender might indeed be interesting, and that it might tell us something more generally about crime and punishment. Do you agree?
Brock Turner's Legal Team Wants His Status as Sex Offender Overturned
The violent offender law requiring registration and a registry of violent offenders is unconstitutionally retroactive under the Indiana Constitution as applied to violent offenders who committed their offenses in Indiana before the date the law went into effect, July 1, , except insofar as the persons are required to register as a current condition of probation or parole. If you have been classified as violent offender as a result of committing the offense in Indiana prior to July 1, , and you are not currently required to register as a condition of probation or parole, the Indiana Department of Correction has been ordered to remove your name and all information concerning you from the sex and violent offender registry, unless you are convicted of other offenses that allow you to be currently classified as a sex or violent offender. This will be done automatically unless the Department of Correction cannot determine when the person committed the offense or whether he or she is required to register as a condition of probation or parole. If this occurs, the individual will receive a notice at his or her last known address with instructions as to how to contact the Indiana Department of Correction.
