A jury has officially found former Stanford swimmer Brock Turner guilty of three felony sexual assault charges from January of 2015.
Turner, who was a freshman on the Stanford swimming roster during the 2014-2015 season, was arrested in January of 2015 after being found on top of an unconscious woman near a fraternity house on the Stanford campus.
After deliberating for two days, the jury found Turner guilty of all three charges: assault with the intent to commit rape, sexual penetration of an intoxicated person and sexual penetration of an unconscious person.
Testimony in the case took place last week. The victim was a 23-year-old woman who had graduated from a different school, but visited a fraternity party at Stanford with her sister and some friends. She testified that she had no memory of the events of the night after drinking at the party. Two bikers, who found Turner on top of her and confronted him, testified that Turner tried to run, and that the woman was unconscious.
Turner testified later in the week, claiming the woman danced with him and kissed him at the frat party, agreed to return to his dormitory with him, and then consented during the sexual contact. The 20-year-old denied any intent to rape the woman.
NBC Bay Area reports that Turner’s sentencing will take place on June 2. He could face up to 10 years in prison.
