The Los Angeles Times* has obtained a letter written by Stanford Rapist Brock Turner's ex-girlfriend, Lydia Pocisk, to Judge Aaron Persky ahead of his sentencing.

Lydia says she would never have predicted her teenage boyfriend would commit such a crime but, wait for it, she’s also very angry with God for causing so much suffering in Brock’s life.

Yes, that’s right - suffering in Brock’s life, no mention of the woman who continues to go through unimaginable pain and suffering because of his actions and his actions alone.

"He was determined to be the best he could be in all he did," the 20-year-old wrote. "I say this with 100% confidence because I remember a conversation with him a few years back. I asked why he had gotten so good at everything he did, and his answer surprised me. He simply said, 'It's not as fun to not be successful or not work hard.'"

"You would think a close friendship of 8 years could predict something like this happening, but the type of person Brock is could never deserve this or do anything he has been convicted of in a thousand of his lives. I have never been so angry with God in all of my life, for instilling such pain on such an undeserving soul."

More court documents were released over the weekend including an emotional letter by the younger sister of the Stanford survivor. The 21-year-old student says Turner made "aggressive" advances towards her and repeatedly tried to kiss her before he attacked her sister.

She said she’d temporarily left the party to walk her friend back to her dorm room. During that time, she tried calling her sister nine times. When she got back to the party, the police were there and she assumed they were there to shut down the party, not knowing what had happened.

"Because she had blacked out, neither of us knew exactly what happened. I had to learn about every graphic detail of her assault through a police report that went publicly viral before anyone told us," she wrote. "I had to read about way her body was found. I realised that the reason I could not find her that night, after checking every room in the fraternity house, after yelling her name outside, was because she had been unconscious and hidden behind a dumpster. That she was naked from the waist down."

"Today, I am still sick thinking about it. Sick to my stomach every time that I am reminded of the incident. I am still sad that I was not there to protect her. We have both been devastated, we have been speechless, and we have cried until our bodies have run dry. Whenever my sister and I thought we could distance ourselves from this horrid memory, the media was there to remind us in full detail about her sexual assault."

She said the entire ordeal has left her heart "permanently broken." She described becoming a muted version of the woman she once was.

Just heartbreaking.
