Another sexual assault story eerily reminiscent of the Brock Turner case has made headlines across the country for a predictably disturbing reason.

In April, 18-year-old David Becker of East Longmeadow High School in Massachusetts was arrested after he allegedly sexually assaulted two unconscious high school seniors at a party, Mass Live reports. However, Becker only pled guilty to indecent assault, on August 15 he was sentenced to just two years of probation and no jail time.

According to Becker's attorney, Thomas Rooke, prison would have "destroyed this kid's life."

(Revelist has reached out to the East Longmeadow Police Department and has requested Becker's mugshot. We will update the piece if and when we hear back.)

"He can now look forward to a productive life without being burdened with the stigma of having to register as a sex offender," Rooke told MassLive. "The goal of this sentence was not to impede this individual from graduating high school and to go onto the next step of his life, which is a college experience."

“We all made mistakes when we were 17, 18, 19 years old, and we shouldn’t be branded for life with a felony offense and branded a sex offender,” he added.

(Thomas Rooke did not immediately respond to Revelist's request for comment.)

As long as Becker stays away from the two victims, he can carry out his probation in Ohio, where he planned to study at Ohio Dayton University. If he stays sober for two years, he will not have to register as a sex offender and the rape charges won't appear on his record.

Despite Rooke's claim that Becker would be enrolled in the school this semester, the university told a Twitter user he would not be attending, but did not specify why.

In a statement to Revelist, the University of Dayton confirmed Becker would not be enrolled as a student this semester.

Many on and offline have drawn comparisons to the cases of Brock Turner, Austin Wilkerson and other young white men who received light sentences despite being found guilty of sexual assault.

Once again, the justice system has failed to do its duty — and ultimately, has failed women.

Correction: This piece originally referred to David Becker as a rapist. He was charged with rape but only pled guilty to indecent assault. The text has been updated to reflect this. We regret our error.
