Turner was convicted in March of assault with intent to commit rape of an intoxicated/unconscious person; penetration of an intoxicated person; and penetration of an unconscious person.
He faced up to 10 years in prison.
"Obviously, the prison sentence would have a severe impact on him," Persky said in court. "The defendant is youthful and has no significant record of prior criminal offenses."
Although Dauber's campaign and multiple Change.org petitions seeking to recall Persky are gaining attention across the internet, it is unlikely to lead to an actual recall for Persky.
According to the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters, recall organizers would have to file paperwork with Santa Clara County and get approval from the county elections official. Organizers then have 160 days to get signatures from over 80,000 Santa Clara County voters by going door to door and have those signatures counted, certified and verified.
BuzzFeed News reported that all of that would need to be done by August 12, which Shannon Bushey, registrar of voters, said was "very, very unlikely."
"I don’t imagine how they could get all of that process, that usually takes six to eight months, done in two months," she said.
Dauber told The Guardian she will launch her formal campaign this week.
