Brock Turner may have notably gotten off after knowingly raping an unconscious girl behind a dumpster, but, he won’t get the same leniency when it comes to his swimming aspirations. The USA Swimming Association, the group in which oversees all swimming (from a professional perspective) in the United States has made a shocking announcement hours after it was revealed Turner would be let out three months early.
USA Swimming confirmed in a statement that Turner would effectively be forever banned from representing the United States in a professional manner for swimming. His membership with the group lapsed in 2014, just before he raped the unconscious girl.
“USA Swimming condemns the crime and actions committed by Brock Turner, and all acts of sexual misconduct,” ABC News quotes USA Swimming as saying in a statement.
