Turner left Santa Clara County Jail at dawn on Friday in a rented SUV, which took him to the local hotel where he planned to stay briefly with his parents before the family returns to their home in Ohio.

"I support him because he has high integrity", Goodman said.

"I don't think there's any definable, actual threats", said Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith before Turner's release, "but there's a lot of hate". He should be in state prison right now.

A harrowing letter from the victim, who remains anonymous, helped draw attention to the case.

However, his sentence sparked global outrage and calls for the judge to be fired.

In addition to the program, Turner is expected to notify law enforcement of any changes in address, job, academic schedule, car, contact number, volunteer work and Internet access information for emails, websites, and social networks.

Outside the Turner residence Friday evening, a newspaper sat unopened in the driveway as about a dozen protesters and roughly twice as many reporters stood at the neck of the cul de sac.

Turner has been released before completing his six-month sentence because of his good behavior as per the rules for California inmates. His parents recently moved from one Dayton, Ohio suburb to another and now live in Sugarcreek Township. That's where he grew up, and where he went after agreeing to withdraw from Stanford following his January 18, 2015, arrest.

The former Stanford swimmer was convicted this year of three felonies, including assault with the intent to commit rape. Brock Turner released from Santa Clara Co.

California Assemblymember Nora Campos also spoke, saying, "We're here because justice did not happen at 6 o'clock this morning" - when Turner was released from jail.

Prosecutors had asked Turner be given six years in state prison. "And the impact statements that have been - or the, really, character letters that have been submitted, do show a huge collateral outcome for Mr. Turner based on the conviction".

Hassett blames the judge for Turner's short sentence.

But supporters of the recall campaign said that is not enough.

The judge has voluntarily removed himself from hearing criminal cases. The bill has been passed to Governor Jerry Brown for approval, but has not yet been signed into law. "Sexual assault is never the victim's fault". The victim said it wasnt fair that Turners loss of his athletic career was taken into consideration when sentencing him.

Addressing Turner directly, she described how he destroyed not just one life, but two. They have also petitioned for cases like the Brock Turner rape case to be handled with much more objectivity when it comes to worrying about the fate of the convicted rapist and more care when it comes to the victims.
