The Stanford Sexual-Assault Judge Is Now Facing Calls for a Misconduct Investigation He also gains some high-profile defenders.

A dozen California state lawmakers are calling for Judge Aaron Persky to be investigated for misconduct, and for prosecutors to seek a review of the six-month sentence Persky gave last week to Brock Turner, the former Stanford student convicted of three sexual-assault felonies.
The lawmakers, including members of the women’s caucus and legislators from districts near Stanford, asked the state's Commission on Judicial Performance to investigate Persky for the sentencing decision. In a separate letter, they also called on Santa Clara District Attorney Jeff Rosen to seek a review of the sentence by another judge, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
