Turner’s transfer is not unexpected as the unnamed victim previously expressed a desire to see him return to Ohio because “he makes her nervous,” a probation report states. Still, Santa Clara County probation officials noted by email in June their right to deny the transfer if Ohio officials “cannot meet some of the conditions” of California’s sentence.
Santa Clara County officials did not immediately respond Wednesday to a request for comment.
Emails first obtained by The Associated Press found Turner lied about his high school habits, and officials said he would be required to attend drug and alcohol counseling in addition to random testing.
Similar emails obtained by the Dayton Daily News state Turner has been made aware of how to register as a sex offender after his release. If transferred, Turner will not be required to register as a sex offender in California, but will need to register in Ohio within five days of release. He will be required to attend a sex offender treatment program.
Turner was also informed he would be unable to possess any firearms or ammunition.
