Stanford University Swimmer Accused of Sexually Assaulting Woman on Campus in Public
A former Stanford University swimmer will face several felony charges after prosecutors say he raped a woman as she lay unconscious on campus grounds.
Brock Allen Turner, 19, is expected to be formally charged Wednesday with five felony counts, including rape of an unconscious woman, rape of an intoxicated woman and two counts of sexual assault with a foreign object, the Santa Clara County district attorney’s office told The Times.
Turner voluntarily withdrew from the university Tuesday, Stanford spokeswoman Lisa Lapin said. He’s not allowed to re-register for classes and is barred from setting foot on campus, Lapin said.
Early on the morning on Jan. 18, prosecutors say, two men riding bikes on campus spotted a man later identified as Turner on top of an unconscious woman. Turner ran away, but the pair tackled him. A third person called police.
