Convicted sex offender Brock Turner is back in his hometown in Ohio, but many neighbors have been anything but welcoming.
Some of them even brandished rifles, carrying the guns under the state’s open carry laws to send the message that what Turner did will not be forgotten.
“No one is going to shoot him unless we see him victimizing people,” said Micah Naziri, one of several Greene County residents protesting Turner’s lax punishment for a sexual assault conviction.
The former Stanford University swimmer was released from Santa Clara County jail Friday morning after serving three months of a six-month sentence for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman after a fraternity party at Stanford in January 2015.
Judge Aaron Persky issue the sentence in June and has since been under fire for being too easy on Turner, who could have received a 10-year prison term for his crimes.
