- Stanford rape case judge Aaron Persky will no longer hear criminal trials: report 18 hours ago
The move comes months after Persky was thrust into the spotlight for sentencing Brock Turner to six months in jail for raping a woman. Not only was he the target of an online petition calling for the removal from the bench, but Persky was also criticized by Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and California Attorney General Kamala Harris (D), among other officials. A group of 10 prospective jurors also refused to serve in Persky’s court this past June, citing his handling of the Turner case. That same month, he was removed from a different sexual assault case after prosecutors complained. The furor against Persky continued following reports that he also allowed 37-year-old Ming Hsuan Chiang to serve in “weekend jail,” rather than a full jail sentence for beating his fiancee and threatening her life, in order to avoid interfering with Chiang’s work schedule.
