There has been some good news to hit the internet in regards to the college rapist, Brock Turner.
Brock Turner is the convicted former Stanford College swimmer who raped an intoxicated/unconscious person…. Brock has officially been barred for life by the USA Swimming team.
The USA Swimming simply has rules to abide by and, according to their recent released statement, “USA Swimming strictly prohibits and has zero tolerance for sexual misconduct, with the firm Code and Conduct policies in place, and serve penalties, including a permanent ban of membership, for those who violate the Code of Conduct.”

A spokesperson said that Brock’s membership had expired at the end of the 2014 year so, as .Scott Leighton, a USA Swimming spokesman, said, “He was not a member at the time of his crime or since then. As a result, USA Swimming doesn’t have any jurisdiction over Brock Turner.”
Brock Turner was originally facing up to 14-years in the state prison for rape, etc…  was later handed a six-month county jail sentencing instead.
And if that isn’t bad enough, at least two months were taken off of his six-months sentencing for good behavior too.
When you do the math, that would mean that Brock could be free and home as early as September 2nd.
It’s also to no surprise that Brock is appealing his six-month conviction and is trying to move his three-year probation to his home state of Ohio.
I’m sure this isn’t the last time we’ll read about him in the news.
