Brock Turner Will Face Counseling After Prison For Lying About Drug And Alcohol Use

Former Stanford student and swimmer Brock Turner, who received a cushy six-month sentence after being convicted of sexually assaulting a 23-year-old unconscious woman behind a dumpster in January 2015, will be required to attend drug and alcohol counseling after his September release from jail, according to the The Associated Press .

The drug and alcohol counseling has been tacked onto his probation following his September 2nd release date after Turner allegedly denied using drugs in his first interview with a probation officer in May. He also claims he only started drinking when he attended Stanford in the fall of September 2014.

But after investigators obtained text messages sent from his phone, they found out that Brock sat on a throne of lies.

After he was told his texts discussing drug use had been publicized, Turner conceded he was lying. He said he used LSD on three occasions and frequently smoked marijuana and drank alcohol in high school. (via)

Granted we’ve likely all embellished our substance intake at one point or another, but the high school LSD hat trick is aggressive. I’m a big believer in you gotta know yourself before you venture that deeply into the depths of your brain with psychedelics. But Brock and I aren’t cut from the same cloth. I haven’t raped anyone.

It has also been revealed that Turner has requested protective custody after receiving threats in jail. Fuck that noise, Turner can suck it up, especially considering that he’ll likely be released from jail after just three months if he achieves good behavior status.

90 days is nothing. A lifetime on the sex offender list is something. Definitely something.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
