Push to Recall Santa Clara County, California Judge Qualifies for Ballot
A campaign to recall Santa Clara County, California Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky has submitted enough valid signatures to the Registrar of Voters to qualify for the June 5 ballot.
Judge Persky made national headlines in 2016 after sentencing a former Stanford University swimmer to six months in jail for sexually assaulting an intoxicated, unconscious woman outside a campus fraternity party.
The Santa Clara Board of Supervisors will have 14 days to put the recall on the June 5 ballot. If they abstain, the recall will automatically be placed on the ballot.
