6:13 am
approaching the bay bridge. . elizabeth wenger will have the traffic report straight ahead but today highs in the 60s and sunshine. 6:13 now. doctors at uc campuses across the state walked off the job as part of a one-day strike. the doctors claim while university execs have given themselves raises they haven't increased funding for students especially for those with mental health issues. executives watched the strike but took no questions. a swimming star is out at stanford and facing sexual assault charges. kpix 5's kiet do is at stanford with more on the accusations against him. kiet. >> reporter: good morning. the accused is a former star at least here at the avery aquatic center who used to practice with the team but no longer. that is because the, um, office of the district attorney has now charged him with five felony counts of sexual assault. we are talking about 19-year- old brock allen turner. he is an all-american swimmer from ohio.
6:14 am
prosecutors say turner, who is 6'2", 165 pounds, was found on top of a female victim who was intoxicated and unconscious. prosecutors say the attack happened after midnight on a sunday morning just outside an on campus party where they had met. two men riding bikes reportedly saw turner chase him down and held him until police arrived. turner withdrew from stanford yesterday. now, in the past year college campuses nationwide have been pressured to do more about sexual assault. last year stanford demonstrators protested demanding tougher penalties for a student who assaulted a fellow classmate off campus. that perpetrator was not expelled was allowed to finish his senior year and then the university withheld his degree for just two years. what's more, he will be allowed to go back on campus to apply to graduate school in 2016. now, as for this most recent case, stanford looks like it's taking a harsher stance. turner isn't allowed back on campus and they are starting their own investigation. turner is out on bail on

6:17 am
