"Nightly Show" host Larry Wilmore last night jogged our memories of last week's —pre-Orlando massacre — controversy over Stanford rapist-swimmer Brock Turner's slap-on-the-wrist six-month sentence for a crime that could have carried fourteen years.
"It's 14 years or six months? Those are the two options?" Wilmore said. "There's got to be something in between, like thirteen years maybe? Or thirteen years and six months? ... Or, what the fuck was wrong with 14 years?"
The presiding judge Aaron Persky sentenced below California's mandatory minimum of two years for Turner's conviction because, he said, prison time would have a "severe impact" on him.
"Yes, because if anyone isn't supposed to change after a brutal attack, it's the attacker," Wilmore responded.
Persky — a Stanford alum — also argued, "there is less moral culpability attached to the defendant, who is ... intoxicated," according to The Guardian.
"That's a defense?" Wilmore continued. "Was this judge drunk at the time of sentencing?"
