Judge Aaron Persky, who sentenced Stanford rapist Brock Turner to a mere six months in jail (for which he served only three), is now coaching a girls tennis team at Lynbrook High School in San Jose, California.
This is the same man who said that Turner, who raped an unconscious young woman with a foreign object and left her undressed behind a dumpster, "will not be a danger to others.”
Of course, the residents of Santa Clara County, who had the judge recalled last year, are not happy.
According to HuffPost:
A petition to remove Persky from his coaching position at Lynbrook has already been created.
“We as a community should be so disappointed in my alma maters the decision to hire recalled Judge Aaron Persky as their new Tennis Coach for the girls’ JV team,” the petition reads. “Survivors deserve better. Our community deserves better. We can, should, and ought to do better. Fire Persky from Lynbrook High, now.”
