Chanel Miller 'Know My Name': Stanford Victim Comes Forward

The sexual assault victim of Stanford swimmer Brock Turner - known for years as "Emily Doe" - revealed her identity Wednesday ahead of releasing a memoir about the harrowing attack, according to a report.

Identified as Chanel Miller by The New York Times, Ms. Miller's testimony went viral at Turner's sentencing hearing after her statement was published by Buzzfeed News.

He was the first judge to be recalled in California since 1932.

He found her lying hear a dumpster and sent a gloating picture of her breasts to his friends. Turner, who could have gotten 14 years in federal prison, was sentenced to six months in county jail.

"Emily Doe", the anonymous sexual assault victim whose impact statement was read by millions before the #MeToo movement caught fire, will appear on "60 Minutes", putting her own voice, name and face to her powerful words.

In an interview with ABC News in June 2016, Swedish doctoral student Carl-Fredrik Arndt said he and his friend Peter Jonsson were riding their bikes through campus in January 2015 when they spotted Turner on top of a woman behind a dumpster outside a fraternity house.

Her book is due to be released on September 24.

Turner, who was then 20 years old, was convicted of three charges - intent to rape an intoxicated and unconscious person, penetration of an intoxicated person and penetration of an unconscious person.

The 19-year-old had a successful loan spell in Germany last season and he has this season been promoted to the first team. Roma have reached an agreement with Arsenal to sign midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan on a season-long loan deal.

"When people read her book, they will be impressed with her". Persky's sentence drew outrage and resulted in his recall in 2018. He did not mention how her life had been changed by the assault.

He was also required to register as a sex offender.

To critics, Mr Persky embodied an outdated USA judicial system that treated sexual assault too lightly and seemed overly concerned with the male attacker, who in this case had a budding sporting career.

"My independence, natural joy, gentleness, and steady lifestyle I had been enjoying became distorted beyond recognition".

Her statement made headlines before the #MeToo movement and brought global attention to the treatment of victims of rape victims. "I became closed off, angry, self-deprecating, tired, irritable, empty", Ms Miller wrote.

Miller's author page on Penguin Random House's website describes her as a San Francisco resident and a writer and artist with a degree in literature from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Due to intoxication, the details of the sexual misconduct were murky for Miller; she was found unconscious by police officers with three times the driving legal limit of alcohol in her bloodstream.
