Former Stanford All-American swimmer Brock Turner was released from jail in San Jose on Friday after serving three months of his six month sentence for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman outside of a fraternity house back in 2015.

Judge Aaron Persky handed down the sentence igniting a massive controversy nationwide for being too lenient.

Turner made his exit from the county jail in front of reporters, cameras and lights until he reached an SUV waiting for him at the curb.

Turner was released three months into his six month sentence because he got credit for time served.

He is expected to return to Dayton, Ohio where he will have to register as a sex offender for life and also be on probation for the next 3 years.

Turner’s picture, conviction information and address will be publicly available on Ohio’s sex offender registry if he returns to Ohio.

One U.S. Representative said there is no justice in the light sentence and early release of Brock Turner.
