Stanford swimmer, Brock Turner, convicted of sex assault freed

A former Stanford University swimmer, whose six-month jail sentence was decried by protesters as too lenient following his conviction of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman in 2015, was released from a San Francisco-area jail on Friday.

Brock Turner, 20, was escorted out of the Santa Clara County Main Jail in San Jose shortly after 6 a.m. local time, just three months after he got in.

Inmates sentenced to county jail in California typically serve just 50 percent of their sentences before their release.
