Dear Mr. Turner,
I’ve read your letter to the judge on behalf of your son Brock, asking for leniency in his rape conviction.
I need you to understand something, and I say this as a father who dearly loves my son as much as you must love yours:
Brock is not the victim here.
His victim is the victim.
She is the wounded one.
He is the damager.
The mother of convicted Stanford University campus rapist Brock Turner told his judge any time behind bars would be a “death sentence.”
Santa Clara Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky six-month county jail sentence last week for the former All-American swimmer provoked criticism by prosecutors who asked for a six-year state prison term.

Public outrage over the lenient sentencing of a star Stanford swimmer convicted of sexual assault has been compounded by a controversial letter written by the athlete’s father.
If we didn't have a vulgarity policy here at the Daily News, this entire column would be 1,000 cuss words with the name Brock Turner in the middle.
Former Stanford University student Brock Turner was found guilty Thursday for sexually assaulting an intoxicated, unconscious woman at a campus fraternity party last year. He was sentenced to six months in a county jail with probation, a ruling state officials argued was too lenient for the violent crime. Now, Turner’s father, Dan, has reportedly written a letter in opposition to his son’s sentence, blaming the case for damaging Brock’s “happy go lucky” nature and loss of appetite.
