Students of Stanford University protested the school in connection with the Brock Turner case for the way the school planned to honor the woman he assaulted in 2015.
The group of student protesters read passages from a letter written by the woman known as “Emily Doe” to the court Friday.
“You took away my worth, my privacy, my energy, my time, my safety.”
A plaque in “Doe’s” honor was to be installed, but the university reportedly refused to use her chosen quotes.
A Stanford University spokesman said two quotes could not be accepted because they would be triggering to survivors of sexual violence.
Turner spent three months in jail for the assault and lives in Greene County as a registered sex offender.
He appealed his conviction and has asked for a new trial.
