Earlier this week, former Stanford student Brock Turner was convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman, and people are outraged over his light sentence to spend mere six months in jail.
Turner's rape trial has garnered national attention for perfectly illustrating white privilege and victim blaming, and even those who once supported Turner are now realizing that he is definitely not the victim in the situation.
Kelly Owens, Brock's former high school guidance counselor, praised the swimmer in a letter to Judge Aaron Persky during the case — nothing that he was an "exceptional student" and "a young man of character" who was "absolutely undeserving of the outcome."

Now, after learning of Turner's laughable sentencing (and the public's reaction to it), Owens regrets supporting the 20-year-old sex offender.
On Wednesday, she issued an apology to her school district and Oakwood High School, writing:
