Martha Stewart Served More Jail Time Than Stanford's Brock Turner

Brock Turner will be released from jail Friday after serving three months for sexual assault.

In March, Turner was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault for an attack on an unconscious woman near a dumpster in January 2015. He was sentenced to six months. It was a light sentence that thrust the high-profile case even further into the limelight. Prosecutors sought six years for Turner.

Turner’s father also came under fire for saying his son shouldn’t have to go to prison for “20 minutes of action.”

The 21-year-old’s jail sentence was cut in half for "good behavior."

Martha Stewart Stewart served five months in prison for lying to federal investigators about a stock sale.
