No beauty in this one but a protection of women's rights is important!
Brock Turner, who served just three months in prison after being convicted last year of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman behind a dumpster in January 2015, filed a motion in court Friday to have his conviction overturned.
In the motion, which was obtained by BuzzFeed News, Turner's lawyers argue that the jury did not see sufficient evidence to represent their client's character, and was not permitted to consider a lower-level offense.
According to court documents, the lawyers are also arguing that the assault did not occur "behind the dumpster," but rather a "completely open setting," and that the jury received "extensive 'behind-the-dumpster' propaganda." They are requesting a new trial in the hopes of overturning Turner's convictions, which require him to become a permanently registered sex offender.
"What we are saying is that what happened is not a crime," John Tompkins, Turner's legal adviser, told NBC. "It happened, but it was not anywhere close to a crime." He went on to describe the trial as "a detailed and lengthy set of lies."
Turner's lawyers did not immediately respond to request for comment. Records show that Turner's legal team filed their appeal in California's 6th District Court of Appeal.
