Background: In 2015 Brock Turner, a Stanford student, was caught in the act of raping an unconscious woman behind a dumpster. After Turner was convicted by a jury, the judge sentenced him to 6 months in jail and 3 years of probation, among other terms. The sentence was perceived as light by the community and the judge was ultimately removed from office using California's recall procedure.

Resolved: The sentence given by Judge Persky in People v. Turner (2015) was appropriate
I will be arguing in favor of the sentence.
5,000 character limit per round in the interests of brevity
I will waive round 1 by stating only the following in round 1: "Round 1 waived per debate rules."
You will waive round 3 by stating only the following in round 3: "Round 3 waived per debate rules."
I (Pro) will not be permitted to respond to your (Con's) round 1 until round 3.
I (Pro) will not be permitted to respond to your (Con's) round 2.
Voters are instructed to disregard any response I (Pro) makes in violation of these rules, except that it may be considered a conduct violation.
The purpose of the foregoing rules is to conduct the debate in a manner which eliminates the contender's advantage and also to deprive my opponent of any opportunity to take advantage of me posting my case first.
