Protestors line sidewalks at Brock Turner's OH home

Turner's early release Friday after three months in jail was met by a throng of television and press cameras from far-reaching parts of the country, as well as women's safety advocates who continue to lament the light sentence given to the former Stanford swimmer for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman past year outside a campus party.

SanJose, Sept3:Brock Turner, 21, who was a swimming champion, assaulted an unconscious woman outside a Stanford University fraternity house.

Santa Clara County Judge Aaron Persky cited Turner's youth, clean criminal record and extracurricular considerations when he sentenced Turner.

LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman is committing $25,000 to a Crowdpac campaign to recall the judge in the Brock Turner rape case.

"It's never going to seem like enough, no matter what kind of sentence we give somebody", Pipkin said.

Hours later the protests began outside the jail and, later, outside his home in Sugarcreek Twp., where Turner has asked and received permission to live with his parents.

Barricades set up to keep spectators at bay flanked a path from the front entrance of the Santa Clara County Main jail in San Jose, Calif.

He now faces three years of unsupervised probation and must register as a sex offender for life.

There were some protesters as Turner left jail. Persky is now only hearing civil cases. "I think it should have been a state prison sentence", said Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith.

Following backlash and a push for a recall, Persky voluntarily removed himself from hearing criminal cases, starting next week.

Smith also sent a letter to California Gov.

After the judgement, people had started a campaign for Persky's removal.

Brock Turner emerged pre-dawn Friday from a California jail to a throng of journalists and a spectator who shouted, "Loser!"

The woman said she now sleeps with pictures of two bicycles taped above her bed to remind herself of the two cyclists that were heroes in this story. "I have a 16-year-old daughter", San Jose resident Bonnie Montgomery said at the protest. Jerry Brown urging him to sign an assembly bill backed by bay area lawmakers that was inspired by the case.

Brock Turner served 3 months for sexual assault-and as of this Friday morning, is a free man who's expected to return home to Greene County.

Additionally, the judge said at the time, he considered the "severe impact" a state prison sentence would have on an offender of Turner's age, based on input from family and friends about how the conviction had already affected him.

"As the Sheriff of Santa Clara County and a mother I believe that the interests of justice are best served by ensuring that sexual predators are sent to prison as punishment for their crime", she wrote. The bill, which has not yet been signed, would require at least three years in prison for those convicted of such a crime. "If a first time offender from an underprivileged background was accused of three felonies and displayed no accountability for his actions other than drinking, what would his sentence be?"

Turner's victim, identified as "Emily Doe", made a powerful statement at his sentencing that drew worldwide attention and went viral. Most significant, he is required to register as a sex offender for life.
