Prosecutor: Rape sentence is mild compared with Brock Turner

CRESCENT CITY, Calif. – A California prosecutor says a man convicted for the rape of a family member received a sentence, that is, to mild, to compare with the case of the former Stanford University swimmer Brock Turner.

The Los Angeles Times reported Friday that a judge sentenced 20-year-old Nolan Bruder last week to 240 days in jail and three years probation for drugging and raping a family member.

Probation officials recommended a sentence of six years. But the judge said: Bruder was stigmatized by the crime, and would be required to register as a sex offender for life.

Del Norte County District Attorney Dale Trigg said Bruder seems to have benefited from the commission of his crime, before a new law that mandates prison for sexual assault.

Lawmakers passed the measure after Turner was sentenced to six months in jail for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman.
