Stanford rape case: What’s next for Brock Turner?


SANTA CLARA COUNTY (KRON) — Convicted Stanford rapist Brock Turner who was sentenced to six months in jail will be released Friday morning, three months early.

Brock is expected to return to his hometown in Greene County, Ohio after his release.

The former Stanford swimmer was convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman near a fraternity in what was one of the most talked-about sexual assault cases of the year.

The judge who sentenced him, Judge Aaron Persky, received backlash from people saying the sentence was too lenient.

What is required of Brock Turner after his release?

Upon his return to Ohio, Turner will have to register as a “Tier 3” sex offender, KRON4’s Ohio affiliate WDTN learned.

“In the state of Ohio we have Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3. Tier 3 being the worst,” said Officer Daniel Schrand who registers all sex offenders in the county. “He’ll have five days from coming back to Greene county to coming to this office and registering with me.”

It’s a label he can never remove from his name or forget since he’ll have to report to the sheriff’s office every 90 days.

Currently, Schrand monitors 135 criminals and is expecting to enter 21-year-old, Brock Turner into the system.

When he enters the sheriff’s office, Officer Schrand says Turner will get a new mugshot and will have to fill out a sheet full of questions pertaining to his case and how he can be contacted.

Authorities anticipate he’ll move in with his parents in Sugarcreek Township.

Turner will also have to pay $100 the first time he registers and then $25, every three months.

“He will have to register with me every 90 days for the rest of his life. If he happens to move to another county, he will have to come in here and unregister with me and that’s when I will contact the other county to make sure the communication lines are not broken,” Officer Schrand said.

Turner can get a job or go back to school, according to authorities. As long he tells the sheriff’s office, where and make his conviction known to his employer, or institution. If he doesn’t he could face more consequences.

“He can be charged with failing to notify,” Schrand said. “I’ve had them charged with the same degree felony as they committed their crime for failing to register employment or address. We take it really seriously here at the sheriff’s office to monitor these sex offenders.”

Turner will be under probation for three years.
