The mugshot of Brock Turner, a former Stanford University student convicted of sexual assault in 2016, appears in a college textbook beside a definition of “rape.”
The mugshot is featured on page 20 of “Introduction to Criminal Justice: Systems, Diversity, and Change” (Sage Publications).
The caption beneath the mugshot:
“Brock Turner, a Stanford student who raped and assaulted an unconscious female college student behind a dumpster at a fraternity party, was recently released from jail after serving only three months. Some are shocked at how short this sentence is. Others who are more familiar with the way sexual violence has been handled in the criminal justice system are shocked he was found guilty and served any time at all. What do you think?”
