Brock Turner, former Stanford swimmer, is set to be released this Friday after serving just half of his six-month sentence for sexual assault.
Mr Turner, 20, was found guilty of sexual assault with intent to commit rape of an intoxicated woman, sexually penetrating an intoxicated person with a foreign object and sexually penetrating an unconscious person with a foreign object.
The young man was caught by two bystanders 'thrusting' on top of a motionless woman outside a fraternity house on 18 January, 2015.
His light sentence of six-months provoked international outrage and calls for the judge Aaron Persky to be disbarred.
In California there is a mandatory sentence for forcible rape, however the law is not the same for cases when the victim is unconscious or intoxicated.
Following the case, the state passed legislation removing a judges ability to use discretion during sentencing in such cases and the judge in question has removed himself from all criminal cases and is facing a high-profile recall campaign.
For Mr Turner, following his brief jail time, he will then be placed on the sex offenders register for the rest of his life.
