Letter: Persky recall effort is a misguided farce

Persky recall effort
is a misguided farce
While much criticism is made of Judge Persky’s allegedly lenient sentence in the Brock Turner case of 6 months in jail instead of 2-4 years in prison, little mention is made of another aspect of the sentence, which is that Turner must register as a sex offender for life. That means he is on lifetime parole, with restrictions on where he may live and work, with a major impact on his private life. This is not a lenient sentence, but is following the law, which Judge Persky is sworn to do.

From what we see, Judge Persky is a fair-minded public servant doing his job the way he should. We will be enthusiastically voting against his recall, and we encourage all level-headed, fair minded citizens to do likewise. In addition, we will not vote for either of the candidates running to replace him, as it would imply legitimacy of this misguided farce.
