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 that evening, she attended a fraternity party and drank too much alcohol and she became unconscious.
Turner, who met her at the party, realizing that she was under a heavy influence of alcohol started sexually assaulting her. Two Swedish graduate students, who were cycling, came to her rescue when they found Turner on an unconscious woman. She chased him down as he ran away and held him down until police arrived. He was arrested and later charged with rape.
She confronted Turner of sexual assault. A year later, he was convicted of three felony counts of sexual assault that could have landed him a 14-year prison sentence. Instead, the case’s judge, Aaron Persky gave Turner six months in county jail.
During the sentencing, Miller came out with a lengthy yet powerful statement about the aftermath and the impact of the assault that had on her life. She addressed Tuner directly rather than addressing to the judge and began, “You don’t know me, but you’ve been inside me, and that’s why we’re 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.
