Brock Turner returns to Ohio, registers as sex offender

September 6, 2016

XENIA, Ohio — A former Stanford University swimmer whose six-month sentence for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman sparked a national outcry has registered as a sex offender in Ohio, where he's living with his parents.

 

Brock Turner registered at the Greene County sheriff's office on Tuesday, four days after leaving a California jail after serving half his term. California jail inmates with good behavior typically serve half their sentences.

 

Turner registered under his family's address in Sugarcreek Township, where about a dozen people had protested Friday as police watched.

 

The 21-year-old must register as a sex offender for life. He faces three years of supervised probation.

 

He was convicted of assaulting a young woman near a trash bin after they drank heavily at a fraternity party in January 2015. Turner plans to appeal.
