Hahaha fair point! Obviously I’m not a lawyer and not really too in-the-know about court cases, but at the same time a black man (Corey something? Apologies the name escapes me) was sentenced for the same three felonies in 2013 and given a minimum sentence of 15 – 25 years, the judge in this case gave Brock Turner a reduced sentence because he feared for the effect it might have on him, surely if they’re meant to sentencing based solely on the facts they wouldn’t take into account a criminals feelings?
