Brock Turner's six month sentence for that sexual assault has sparked a nationwide outrage.

From the documents, ABC7 News has learned another woman at the party identified Turner as "the aggressive guy" when police showed her a line-up. She said she had to get away from him after he grabbed her waist.

Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky says he sentenced Brock Turner to just six months for the sexual assault at Stanford because of his age and lack of criminal record.

But the prosecution's full sentencing memo, obtained by ABC7 News, stresses turner had a history of harassing women.

"Additionally, this assault occurred a week after he was similarly aggressive with another female at another fraternity party at the same location," according to court documents.

The district attorney also says, Turner lied to the judge about his drinking and partying, writing: "the cellphone evidence also showed that he had routinely engaged in smoking marijuana and experimenting with other drugs, specifically acid."

It's information Persky had before him, when he handed down the sentence. California assembly member Nora Campos says it's an injustice and she's demanding action.

"That the judge step down or that we move forward calling on all women in this valley to align with us on asking for his resignation," Campos said.

Nearly 1 million people appear to have joined the recall effort. Advocacy groups, including Ultra Violet, say they've collected that many signatures and will deliver them to the Commission on Judicial Performance in San Francisco Friday at noon.

"As a swimmer, as a Stanford student, the judge seemed more concerned about his future than the future of the woman he was convicted of raping," Melissa Byrne of Ultraviolet said.

Turner was convicted of three felonies for sexually assaulting a woman who was unconscious behind a dumpster on campus.
