Chanel Miller Assault Case

Miller’s case made headlines in 2016 after BuzzFeed published the statement she read at the sentencing hearing for Brock Turner, the Stanford student convicted of the assault. Turner had attacked her while she was unconscious on the ground outside a university fraternity house party. Two Swedish students, cycling past, challenged Turner when they realized Channel Miller, who was found partly dressed near a dumpster, was not moving.

In a full statement was later published by Buzzfeed, Miller said she only learned the full horror of what happened when reading the news on her phone.

She wrote: “At the bottom of the article after I learned about the graphic details of my own sexual assault, the article listed his swimming times. She was found breathing, unresponsive with her underwear six inches away from her bare stomach curled in a fetal position.

“By the way, he’s really good at swimming.”

During the trial, she set out in the statement, she faced a barrage of questions: “What were you wearing?”, “Why were you going to this party?’, “Did you party at frats?”, “Are you serious with your boyfriend?”

At Turner’s sentencing, Channel Miller addressed him directly with her statement, beginning with the words: “You don’t know me, but you’ve been inside me, and that’s why we’re here today.”

Turner, then 20, was found guilty of three counts of felony sexual assault, for which the maximum sentence was 14 years. But the presiding judge, Aaron Persky, sentenced Mr. Turner to six months in county jail, of which he served three. Judge Persky’s ruling drew criticism from those who viewed it as too lenient, and he was recalled by voters in 2018. The trial sparked a national debate about sexual assault and whether white men from wealthy backgrounds were treated more favorably by the US justice system.

Channel Miller’s Book, Know My Name

While writing Know My Name to be published on September 24th, 2019  by Viking, she found out further details of her own case, through court documents and witness statements she had not had access to during the trial. The memoir’s publisher said it would “change the way we think about sexual assault forever”.

The case happened before the #MeToo movement, but Miller – who started writing her book in 2017 – added to her memoir and expanded its scope as the spotlight was shone on sexual violence.

Venetia Butterfield, publisher at Penguin General, Schulz said: “It is an immense privilege to share Chanel Miller’s honest, eloquent and emotional story with readers. Here is a book that will change the way we think about sexual assault forever.”

The cover art for “Know My Name” is inspired by the Japanese art of kintsugi or “golden repair.” It entails broken pottery pieces are mended using lacquer and powdered gold. It’s a process that makes a new, beautiful object out of what’s been broken, emphasizing where it has cracked. The book is meant to represent Miller’s recovery, from the assault as well as the trauma of a trial.

Miller finished her statement by addressing survivors and “girls everywhere”:

And finally, to girls everywhere, I am with you. On nights when you feel alone, I am with you. When people doubt you or dismiss you, I am with you. I fought everyday for you. So never stop fighting, I believe you. As the author Anne Lamott once wrote, ‘Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining.’ Although I can’t save every boat, I hope that by speaking today, you absorbed a small amount of light, a small knowing that you can’t be silenced, a small satisfaction that justice was served, a small assurance that we are getting somewhere, and a big, big knowing that you are important, unquestionably, you are untouchable, you are beautiful, you are to be valued, respected, undeniably, every minute of every day, you are powerful and nobody can take that away from you. To girls everywhere, I am with you. Thank you.
