The impact from the Stanford sexual assault case takes a new turn Friday morning. A group says it has a million reasons why the judge should be removed from office.

It's unclear how much Brock Turner is hearing about the backlash to his sentencing last week. He's in the Santa Clara County Jail for at least the next three months.

ABC7 News is learning new details about what led up to the sentencing.

Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky says he sentenced Turner to just six months for the sexual assault at Stanford because of his age and lack of criminal record.

But the prosecution's full sentencing memo, obtained by ABC7 News, stresses Turner had a history of harassing women and was similarly aggressive with another female at a fraternity party the week before.

The district attorney also says Turner lied to the judge about his drinking and partying.

It's information Persky had before him when he handed down the sentence.

State Assembly member Nora Camps (D - San Jose) says it's an injustice and she's demanding action.

"That the judge step down or that we move forward, and calling on all women in this valley to align with us on asking for his resignation," she said.

Nearly one million people appear to have joined the recall effort for Persky.

Advocacy groups, including Ultra Violet, say they've collected that many signatures and will deliver them to the commission on judicial performance in San Francisco Friday at 12 p.m.

Turner also faces another penalty for his crime.

ABC News reports USA Swimming has banned him for life from competing in their events.
