— 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.

— Heavy rains made for tough driving conditions Saturday, but high water remains a concern through the weekend.
Lower lying and more rural roads are at a greater risk of flooding, such as Ohio 68 in Beavercreek, and Ohio 725, which is closed until further notice between Peniwit and Lower Bellbrook roads.
“We just want motorists to take a little extra time in planning where they want to go,” Sgt. Rod Murphy of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.
Anyone planning to head out this morning should be aware of potential flooding that could block your way.
If you see standing water in the roadway, turn around, even if the water appears shallow.
“It’s not worth the risk. It’s better to just safely turn around and find another way,” Murphy said.
On wet roadways another concern is hydroplaning, when tires lose their grip on the pavement. Motorists in that situation are advised to “just let off the gas, slow down, and try to get to a safe area,” Murphy said.
Late Saturday and early Sunday there were reports of flooding throughout the Miami Valley.
3:27 a.m.: High water reported at Wilson Road between Fenner Road and OH-55.
3:05 a.m.: South Valley at US-35 is shut-down due to high water.
1:45 a.m.: April Lane at New Germany Trebien Road and Beavery Valley Road closed.
12:00 a.m.: Upper Bellbrook Road reported having high water.
12:00 a.m.: High water on US-68 and North at Sutton Road caused a vehicle slide off and a police cruiser was damaged.
11:30 p.m.: Hebble Creek was out of its banks in Fairborn in Greene County
