UPDATE: Friday, 10:45 a.m. EDT — Brock Turner, the former Stanford University swimmer convicted of sexual assault, was formally released from jail Friday in California after serving half of his six-month sentence, NBC News reported.
The ex-Stanford University swimmer who was sentenced to six months in prison for sexually assaulting an unconscious peer is on track to be released Friday. But after that, Brock Turner's future is unclear.
Turner, 21, was convicted for felony assault with the intent to commit rape of an unconscious person, sexual penetration of an intoxicated person and sexual penetration of an unconscious person earlier this year after he raped a blacked-out woman at college in January 2015, according to the Los Angeles Times. A heart wrenching letter from his victim went viral after Judge Aaron Persky decided to sentence him to only six months.
But Turner was only required to serve three months of his time in jail. So what happens next? Here's what we know:
He won't be going back to Stanford. Turner withdrew from the school, but the university took it a step further. The university issued a statement in June that forbids him from coming to Stanford at all. "In less than two weeks after the incident, Stanford had conducted an investigation and banned Turner from setting foot on campus — as a student or otherwise," the school wrote. "This is the harshest sanction that a university can impose on a student."
He may go back to Ohio. Turner has been serving time in California, but he's from Oakwood, Ohio. He plans to serve his three years of probation in Greene County, WHIO reported. There, he'll have to register as a sex offender and won't be allowed to have guns. CNN noted he also won't be able to live near schools or child care centers.
He won't become a swimmer for Team USA. Joining USA Swimming, a group that selects the Olympics swim teams, is no longer an option for Turner. "Brock Turner is not a member of USA Swimming and, should he apply, he would not be eligible for membership," spokesman Scott Leightman told USA Today in June. "Had he been a member, he would be subject to the USA Swimming Code of Conduct. USA Swimming strictly prohibits and has zero tolerance for sexual misconduct, with firm Code of Conduct policies in place, and severe penalties, including a permanent ban of membership, for those who violate our Code of Conduct."
He will go to counseling. Turner's probation manager, Jana Taylor, told the Associated Press he'll have to attend drug and alcohol counseling sessions. She said she doesn't "want to be placed in a position in the event we violate him for positive tests and his attorney argues we never modified probation to include counseling." Turner will also have random drug tests.
