The former Stanford University and Oakwood High School swimmer Brock Turner was spotted this afternoon in the backyard of his parents’ home in Ohio.

Turner was released from jail Friday after serving half of his six-month sentence in Santa Clara County, California, for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman behind a dumpster on campus in January 2015.

Turner’s parents moved from their Oakwood home to a house in a Sugarcreek Twp. in Greene County, where Turner will serve his three-year probation. Turner also will be required to register with his local sheriff’s office every 90 days for the rest of his life as a Tier III sex offender. Also, he must undergo sex offender treatment while on probation.

“We’re not treating him with kid gloves,” Greene County Sheriff Gene Fischer said last week. “We’re going to treat him like every other sex offender that comes through the doors.”

Following his release on Friday, Fischer said he has five days to report to Fischer’s office in Xenia. After that, the sheriff’s office will send postcards to Turner’s neighbors to notify them of his nearby residence.

Turner also must meet with a state officer for his probation. The nearest prison is in Lebanon.
