XENIA, Ohio — A former Stanford University student whose six-month jail sentence for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman sparked a national outcry registered as a sex offender on Tuesday in Ohio, where he's living with his parents.
Brock Turner registered at the Greene County Sheriff's Office four days after he was released from the Santa Clara County jail after serving half his term.
Turner's mother tried to shield him from media cameras as he registered under his family's Dayton-area address in Sugarcreek Township, where about a dozen people had protested Friday as police watched.
Sheriff Gene Fischer said Turner is being treated the same as any other sex offender under his office's supervision.
Turner, 21, must register as a sex offender for life, checking in every three months, and he faces three years of supervised probation. Deputies will check on him without warning to make sure he hasn't moved without permission.
