Stanford Sexual Assault
On January 18, 2015, Brock Allen Turner raped Chanel Miller behind a dumpster near the Kappa Alpha fraternity on the Stanford campus. Earlier in the evening, she attended a fraternity party, drank too much and lost consciousness.
Turner, who met her at the party, realizing that she was under a strong influence of alcohol began to sexually assault her. Two Swedish graduate students, who were cycling, came to his aid when they found Turner on an unconscious woman. She pursued him while he was running away and kept him until the police arrived. He was arrested and charged with rape.
She confronted Turner with a sexual assault. A year later, he was convicted of three counts of sexual assault for which he was sentenced to 14 years in prison. The judge of the case, Aaron Persky, however, granted Turner six months in prison.
In sentencing, Miller released a long but powerful statement about the aftermath and the impact of the assault on his life. She spoke directly to Tuner rather than to the judge and she began, "You do not know me, but you have been in me, and that's why we are here today," she began.
Miller's statement went viral and was read millions of times after it was published by Buzzfeed and then re-published by news sites around the world.
