In Touch has exclusively learned that some members of the Stanford swim team had long been suspicious of the quiet Ohio native.
“Brock’s arrest wasn’t surprising to anyone on the team. From the beginning, the women swimmers had found him to be very, very odd. Brock would make comments to the women such as 'I can see your t--s in that swimsuit,'" a Stanford swim team insider exclusively reveals, adding that one elite swimmer vowed to never be alone with Brock after witnessing him get drunk at a party.
“He was warned by upperclassmen on the team to scale back on the partying, but he just didn’t listen.”

The insider explains that the women tried to come forward after learning of his sex crime. There were discussions among some of the women on the team about submitting letters to the judge about their negative experiences with Brock, says the insider, adding that the discussions were suddenly halted and the letters were never filed.
“There were rumblings that the women were pressured by Stanford officials to not do it since they hadn’t witnessed any crime that Brock had committed,” says the insider.
Lisa Lapin, the school’s Associate Vice President for University Communications, insists that, “As private individuals, our students can say what they wish to whom they wish.”
But the insider insists, “The team has been instructed to not discuss Brock Turner publicly or to the media; however, the entire team completely supports the victim and wishes that Brock had gotten a much harsher sentence.”
