Turner could petition the California Supreme Court to consider his appeal. Turner’s attorney Eric Multhaup didn’t return a phone call Wednesday.
Stanford law professor Michelle Dauber, who led the judge’s recall campaign, called on Turner to drop any further appeals.

Turner lives outside Dayton, Ohio, with his parents. He is required to register as a sex offender for life.
