Father doesn’t believe son convicted of sexual assault should go to prison for ’20 minutes of action’ The father of a 20-year-old man who was convicted on multiple charges of sexual assault does not believe his son should go to prison for “20 minutes of action.” Last week, Brock Turner, a former swimmer at Stanford University, was sentenced to six months in county jail and probation for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman, the Guardian reports. Turner was spotted sexually assaulting the young woman behind a dumpster outside of a Stanford University fraternity house. Two students biking in the area spotted the assault and held Turner down until authorities could arrive. After Turner was found guilty on three felony counts, including assault with intent to commit rape of an intoxicated/unconscious person, penetration of an intoxicated person and penetration of an unconscious person, he faced a maximum of 14 years in prison.
