CA: Brock Turner’s Judge requests re-assignment as “night judge”

A Palo Alto judge whose 2016 sentence of a former Stanford student-athlete convicted of sexual assault drew nationwide criticism has requested a new court assignment next year, according to Santa Clara County Superior Court officials.

Judge Aaron Persky, whose 6-month jail sentence of Brock Turner sparked a recall campaign against him, will be the “night judge” starting in January, according to court spokesperson Ben Rada. Persky requested the assignment, according to Rada.  (Source)
