The former Stanford athlete who was discovered raping an unconscious woman behind a dumpster on campus received a sentence of 1/12th of what the prosecution recommended.

The prosecutor recommended that Brock Allen Turner, who was member of Stanford’s swim team, serve six years in a state prison; the judge gave him six months in the county jail, according to NY Mag.

Judge Aaron Persky’s basis for his sentence was that Turner was a first time offender and he was only 20 years old.

“A prison sentence would have a severe impact on him,” Persky said at Turner’s sentencing on Thursday. “I think he will not be a danger to others.”

Turner’s 23-year-old victim in the rape case said, “You took away my worth, my privacy, my energy, my time, my safety, my intimacy, my confidence, my own voice, until today,” she said, reportedly directly to Turner in open court. “I am a human being who has been irreversibly hurt.”

Although psychologists claim that babies as young as six months are able to distinguish right from wrong, theologians generally place it at seven years of age.

But 20? That seems a bit much. Slow developer, perhaps?
