Brock Turner’s rape conviction and lenient sentence has inspired major debate about blame and responsibility for sexual assault. After the victim got drunk and blacked out, she has admitted to having no recollection of the assault that took place behind a dumpster outside a frat party. Though there are some that are blaming her for her reckless actions that could have contributed to her being attacked, what about the culpability of Turner himself, and the judge in the case that was so sympathetic to the Stanford swimmer? We explore the trial and media with attorney Mike Cavalluzzi and fmr. New Scotland Yard head of homicide prevention, Laura Richards, in this highlight from the Crime Time episode hosted by Allison Hope Weiner.
