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.

ATLANTA — A woman with multiple sclerosis says Delta Air Lines employees tied her to her wheelchair because she can’t sit up on her own and they didn’t have the chair she needed.
Maria Saliagas travels to Europe with her husband every year. When she was diagnosed with MS five years ago, she didn’t want to break her tradition of traveling with her husband.
She said Delta normally accommodates her by making sure staff members have a proper wheelchair that has straps to help her sit up straight.
When she flew out of Atlanta on April 1 and arrived in Amsterdam, Delta didn’t have a chair with straps, so employees tied her to a regular wheelchair with someone else’s blanket, said her son, Nathan Saliagas.
“They took a dirty blanket and tied her forcefully with it, and she has bruise marks on part of her arm because it was so tight and she started crying. That’s when that picture was taken,” Saliagas said.
A Delta representative sent WSB-TV a statement about the incident, saying:
“We regret the perception our service has left on these customers. We have reached out to them, not only to resolve their concerns, but also ensure that their return flight exceeds expectations.”
The family returns to Atlanta on April 30.
When the family complained to Delta, they said the airline offered them 20,000 free SkyMiles, but they said that's not enough.

RIVERSIDE — A 46-year-old woman killed in a head-on collision in Riverside Tuesday afternoon has been identified.
Alpha Adams, of Dayton, has been identified as the driver killed in the crash on southbound Harshman Road, according to the Montgomery County Coroner's Office.
An autopsy on the Woodman Park Drive resident is scheduled for today.
OTHER LOCAL NEWS: Arrest made in drug case
Witnesses said she was driving erratically, “being aggressive and making hand gestures” just before she was involved in a head-on collision on southbound Harshman Road near Airway Road and Woodman Drive at about 3:45 p.m., Riverside police Sgt. Dave Crigler said.
Witnesses said the woman appeared to be driving erratically on Harshman, headed toward Airway, when she sideswiped a school bus, then hit a second vehicle as she continued on.
She drove left of center as she approached the intersection at Airway Road, striking another vehicle head-on, the sergeant said.
Three other people were injured in the accident that involved as many as eight vehicles, he said, and they have been taken to different hospitals.
There were no children on the school bus, Crigler said.
“We don’t exactly know what the hand gestures were,” the sergeant said.
Zeke Bowling, whose girlfriend was driving one of the vehicles struck in the incident, said she was taken to a hospital and his daughter and son were also in the girlfriend’s vehicle.
Bowling characterized the fatality was the result of a road rage incident.
Crigler said he could not confirm whether the fatality was the result of road rage.

— The attorney for Stormy Daniels reiterated that a DVD of evidence of the adult film actress’ affair with President Donald Trump is “locked and loaded,” Newsweek reported.
Michael Avenatti appeared on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” and in the online-only Overtime segment, the attorney was grilled about the DVD, which he teased with a photograph in a tweet last month.
Maher asked whether Avenatti would ever “release the contents of the warning-shot disc of evidence you tweeted about.”
“Possibly. It depends how the case progresses,” Avenatti said.
Maher tried to get specific, asking “What’s on it?”
“Well, we took that picture and we tweeted it out and it was exactly that -- it was a warning shot to Michael Cohen and the president that if they tried to claim that my client was a liar after ‘60 Minutes’ there was gonna be consequences, and it worked, and it worked perfectly because we heard nothing from them,” Avenatti said.
Avenatti also was asked about Cohen’s legal relationship with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
“Here’s what I think: I think that when the documents actually come out, and there are documents -- there’s no question in my mind, there are documents with Sean Hannity’s name on them -- the extent of that relationship, when it finally surfaces, I think will be very embarrassing to Sean Hannity,” Avenatti said.
Hannity has claimed that Cohen merely advised him on a real estate query.
Avenatti described Cohen as a “zero,” Newsweek reported
“I think that Michael Cohen knows where almost all the bodies are buried, and I think that he’s going to sing like a canary,” Avenatti said. “I know he’s going to fold, because here’s the problem, when you have a fixer, you need two things at least: You need a guy who is tough, and you need a guy that is smart. This guy is neither tough nor smart. I think he’s a zero.”
