Video captures the moment Stanford rapist Brock Turner strolls from jail after three months.

After just three months in jail for the sexual assault of an unconscious woman, Brock Turner has walked free from jail.

The footage shows the 21-year-old with a stony face, as he strolled to a white vehicle that whisked him away.

The ABC reports that Turner did not answer any questions as he walked free, with a large crowd of media and protesters surrounding him.

Coverage of Turner’s release has caused widespread outrage as he is still hailed by some as a “swimmer”, rather than a criminal.

Turner was 19 when he sexually assaulted an unconscious woman behind a dumpster after a college party.

The case made international headlines after the survivor of his horrific crimes after a powerful statement on what had occurred to her.

“You don’t know me, but you’ve been inside me, and that’s why we’re here today,” she said during the trial.

“My damage was internal, unseen, I carry it with me. You took away my worth, my privacy, my energy, my time, my safety, my intimacy, my confidence, my own voice, until today.”

His conviction of just six months by judge Aaron Persky, with three years of probation, has been labelled a “slap on the wrist” by prosecutors.

People have reported that Turner will return to his hometown in Ohio, and register as a sex offender.

His conditions of release include that he will never step on the Stanford University campus again, and will have to undergo drug and alcohol counselling during his release.
