A United States judge who was widely criticized for his leniency towards a campus rapist has been removed from office by voters.

 

Judge Aaron Persky handed Stanford University swimmer Brock Turner a six-month sentence in June 2016.

 

But county judges in California are elected, and if a petition to remove them from office garners enough signatures a vote will be held.

 

Tuesday's vote in Santa Clara County marks the first time a Californian judge has been removed in this way for more than 80 years.
