Brock Turner loses 'outercourse' appeal and will remain on sex offenders' registerBrock Turner, whose campus sexual assault case made international headlines, will remain on the sex offenders’ register for life after losing an appeal. A three-panel judge ruled there was “substantial evidence” to indicate the 22-year-old received a fair trial in 2016, when he was convicted of sexually assaulting and attempting to rape an unconscious woman behind a dumpster at a college fraternity party. “He did not explain or defend himself to them,” said Judge Franklin Elia, who wrote the unanimous decision for the panel.
