Brock Turner

SANTA CLARA COUNTY, Calif. — A coven of witches have performed an impotence hex on Brock Turner, who was convicted of sexually assaulting a woman at Stanford University.

U.S. News reported that Melanie Hexen, a self-proclaimed witch from Iowa, recently posted the virtual hexing to Facebook.

“Brock Allen Turner we hex you,” the post said. “You will be impotent. You will know constant pain of pine needles in your guts. Food will bring you no sustenance. In water, your lungs will fail you. Sleep will only bring nightmares. Shame will be your mantle. You will meet justice.”

Hexen had invited 12 members of her coven to the virtual hexing event, but the event soon grew to more than 1,000 people attending.

Turner was found thrusting his body against an unconscious woman behind a dumpster on Stanford’s campus in January of last year.

He was convicted of three counts of sexual assault and sentenced to six months in jail. He is scheduled to be released from jail in three months, not six, a sentence many view as too lenient.
