FILE - This June 27, 2011 file photo shows Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky, who drew criticism for sentencing former Stanford University swimmer Brock Turner to only six months in jail for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman. California Gov. Jerry Brown has approved two bills that emerged after a former Stanford University swimmer was sentenced to six months in jail for sexually assaulting a woman passed out near a trash bin. The Democratic governor said Friday, Sept. 30, 2016, that he signed one bill requiring state prison time for someone convicted of assaulting an unconscious victim instead of a shorter jail sentence like the one Brock Turner received.
