Brock Turner’s conviction, and the bravely stark testimony of his victim, have helped to bring these questions about how sexual crimes are defined – and how that impacts on attitudes towards sentencing – out into the open.The tragedy is that no level of public debate or outrage can undo the despicable harm he caused to an unconscious woman.Then, I felt pine needles scratching the back of my neck and started pulling them out my hair. I shuffled from room to room with a blanket wrapped around me, pine needles trailing behind me, I left a little pile in every room I sat in.I thought maybe, the pine needles had fallen from a tree onto my head. I was asked to sign papers that said “Rape Victim” and I thought something has really happened.A compelling, haunting description by the victim of her experience has been read millions of times online after being released by the district attorney – its power so at odds with the court’s apparent leniency.Around the world outraged headlines have referred to the “Brock Turner rape case”.Since that did not occur Turner is a criminal, a sex offender – but he isn’t, according to the law, a rapist.It is notable that America’s Federal Bureau of Investigations defines rape differently, as “penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object…without the consent of the victim”.
