SAN JOSE – More than a year after being recalled by voters, the controversial judge in the Brock Turner sexual assault case is now working as a coach at a South Bay high school.
In a statement Tuesday, the Fremont Union High School District confirmed Aaron Persky was hired to head the junior varsity girls tennis team at Lynbrook High School in San Jose. Persky applied for the open position over the summer and successfully completed all of the district’s hiring requirements, including a fingerprint background check.
“He was a highly qualified applicant, having attended several tennis coaching clinics for youth and holds a high rating from the United States Tennis Association,” the statement said.
Persky was ousted as a superior court judge in June
