Outrage Grows Over Jail Sentence for Stanford Sexual Assault

Outrage Grows Over Jail Sentence for Stanford Sexual Assault

Outrage over a six month jail sentence for a Stanford student convicted of the sexual assault of an unconscious woman is intensifying. A leaked statement from the perpetrator's father saying his son was being unfairly punished for "20 minutes of action" went viral, as did a wrenching letter by the victim to the court. Thousands have signed petitions demanding a lengthier sentence and for the judge who oversaw the case to be removed from the bench. Forum discusses the case and the problem of campus sexual assault.
