Worse than Brock Turner.

When people are convicted of crimes of sexual assault, a great deal of stigma follows them. In the case of repeat offenders, this stigma can allow for potential victims to avoid those who have a criminal history of sexual assault or abuse. However, living with a life of stigma is by no means the same as spending time in prison. For some, it may seem that the stigma is worse than prison, but we beg to differ.

One California judge decided that the stigma was punishment enough, however, so he sentenced a 20-year-old man to a small sentence that critics are calling worse than the disgrace of a punishment handed to Brock Turner.
