Survivor In Brock Turner Case Reveals Her Name 

The woman who was sexually assaulted by former Stanford University student Brock Turner, known during her legal proceedings as Emily Doe, is revealing her real name and introducing herself to the world, ahead of her upcoming memoir about her story and the global impact of her case. Her real identity is Chanel Miller.

Chanel Miller has written “Know My Name,” in which “she reclaims her identity to tell her story of trauma, transcendence, and the power of words,” according to her publisher, Viking, which will release the book on Sept. 24. In 2016, Turner was convicted for sexually assaulting Miller outside a fraternity party in 2015. The case made widespread headlines, particularly when the county judge, Aaron Persky, sentenced Turner to just six months in jail, despite facing up to 14 years. Persky believed that Turner was “remorseful,” even though he never admitted guilt in raping Miller. Turner, who had been a star swimmer at Stanford, only ended up serving three of the six months.

Miller’s victim impact statement, which she read at Turner’s sentencing hearing, went viral and drew attention from around the world, including from lawmakers in Congress. Miller’s powerful remarks and Turner’s lenient sentence sparked new conversations about rape culture and white male privilege and led California to pass minimum sentencing requirements for sexual assault cases. In 2018, voters recalled Persky, the first judge in California to be successfully recalled since 1932.

On Wednesday, CBS’ “60 Minutes” announced that it will air Miller’s first interview on Sept. 22 and released a clip of her reading her impact statement. Miller graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and now lives in San Francisco, where she works as a writer and artist, according to her author biography. She has been working on the book since early 2017, her publisher told The New York Times, aiming to process her sexual assault and the trial, as well as her trauma and recovery process. The book expanded its focus and relevance since the groundswell of the Me Too movement in the fall of 2017.

How did the incident happen?

Two Swedish graduate students, Peter Lars Jonsson (AKA W01) and Carl-Fredrik Arndt (AKA W02), were cycling by the Kappa Alpha fraternity on the Stanford campus about 1:00 a.m., on January 18, 2015, when they spotted the assault taking place. According to Arndt and Jonsson, they surprised Turner behind a dumpster as he was on top of an unconscious woman.

In his statements, Turner described initially drinking five Rolling Rock beers and two swigs of Fireball whiskey in a friend's room, and then having more beer later, reaching a total of nine drinks.

Turner told police that he met the victim at the Kappa Alpha house, they "drank beer together," "walked away from the house holding hands," and that he took off her clothes and fondled her while she rubbed his back. Turner then said he got nauseous and told her he needed to vomit. Turner said he got up and started to walk away to throw up, and heard another person saying something to him which he could not understand, then heard the same person talking to another person in a foreign language. He also denied running from graduate students. Turner stated that he and the victim drank beer together, danced and kissed at the party and agreed to go back to his room. Turner stated that the victim slipped on a slope behind a wooden shed, then Turner got down to the ground and started kissing with the victim. Turner stated he then asked her if she wanted him to "finger" her, to which she said yes. He stated that he "fingered" her for a minute as they were kissing, then they started "dry humping." Turner testified that he stumbled down an incline where he was confronted by the graduate students saying things like "You're sick" and "Do you think that's OK?" Turner testified that he didn't know what they were talking about. They said they grabbed him, but Turner said that he broke away, but was quickly tackled.
