WNBA legend Candice Wiggins — a superstar during her college career at Stanford — says the judge in the Brock Turner rape case should be removed ASAP … saying a 6-month jail sentence is “beyond ridiculous.”
Turner — who was a member of the Stanford swim team — was convicted of raping an unconscious woman on the Stanford campus in 2015. He faced 14 years in prison, but was only sentenced to 6 months in jail.
People were pissed at the sentence — claiming he was given a huge break because he’s a white male star athlete. A Change.org petition calling for Judge Persky’s removal has more than 700k signatures.
Count Wiggins as one of the outraged people — telling TMZ Sports, “It was really hard to see what the judge, how the judge responded. He was totally wrong.”
“The judge should be removed,” Wiggins said … “I honestly think that 6 months is beyond ridiculous and, I think whatever years whether it was 14 or 6 years, he needs to face what he did. And I think that’s the most important thing. Him understanding what he did was wrong.”
