The woman sexually assaulted by former Stanford University student and Oakwood High School grad Brock Turner — known during her legal proceedings as Emily Doe — is revealing her real name prior to releasing a memoir about incident and in an interview that will be nationally televised on the CBS program “60 Minutes.”
In June, Viking Books announced it would publish in September the story of the woman involved in the high-profile case. The name of the book and the victim’s name were not known then.
However, “60 Minutes” reports that Chanel Miller has come forward, allowing her name to be made public and releasing the book’s title, “Know My Name.”
According to a press release from Viking, the story focuses on “trauma, transcendence and the power of words.” It will be released Sept. 24.
A judge sentenced Turner to six months in jail in 2016 after being convicted of felony sexual assault, sparking outrage from many. The judge later became the first judge recalled in California since 1932.

Turner, 24, served three months of the six-month sentence, which also included three years of probation and the requirement to register as a sex offender.
The Ohio Parole Board said Wednesday afternoon that his probation “effectively ended on Sept. 2, 2019.”
In September 2016, Turner, now a resident of Bellbrook, registered as a Tier III sex offender with the Greene County Sheriff’s Office. He must register every 90 days for life.

Miller read her impact statement in court, telling Turner he had taken away her self-worth and voice, “until today.” In the statement, Miller recounted her inability to control her own narrative in a justice system she says is brutal and dehumanizing for victims.
Her statement, more than 7,000 words, was widely read after it was released to the public.
Miller will tell her story in an interview with Bill Whitaker to be broadcast at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22 on “60 Minutes” on CBS.
