Attorney argues Brock Turner's sexual assault conviction should be overturned

An attorney for the former Stanford swimmer said he was engaged in "sexual outercourse," and didn't intend to rape the victim.

An argument to overturn the conviction of a former Stanford University swimmer who was found guilty of sexually assaulting an intoxicated woman is in the hands of a California appeals court, which must consider whether "sexual outercourse" made a difference in the case.

An attorney for Brock Turner said before a three-judge panel on Tuesday that in 2015, the then 19-year-old college freshman had his clothes on when he was discovered with the victim outside of a fraternity party near Stanford.

When Turner was found on top of the woman, who was also unconscious and half-naked, he was fully clothed and did not have his genitals exposed. Attorney Eric Multhaup argued that Turner was engaged in "sexual outercourse" and did not demonstrate that he intended to rape the victim, according to NBC Bay Area.

1. This makes me even angrier....

Outercourse? So that somehow makes it ok or not sexual assault if someone has their clothes on but is groping someone and dryhumping them? Especially if they are unconscious?

No - its still sexual assault and its even more infuriating that this Brock Turner already got way too light of a sentence....For which the judge was voted off the bench....

2. F*ck this lawyer, and his client, and his client's family, and anyone else involved in this appeal.

What a disgrace. He already got off light for what he did, if anywhere that is where the injustice lies in this case.

3. I hope the appellate panel gives this argument all the gravitas and due consideration it deserves

Then, after getting up off the floor from , they affirm the lower court's judgment.
