Chanel Miller CBS 60 Minutes

Many people were enraged when Turner was sentenced to six months in jail in 2016 after his conviction for felony sexual assault, more than a year before the #MeToo movement took off.

In a clip from an upcoming 60 Minutes interview, Chanel reads her statement, this time with the world knowing her name.

Chanel Miller is known in legal proceedings as "Emily Doe". He was convicted on charges of assault with intent to rape an intoxicated woman, sexually penetrating an intoxicated person with a foreign object and sexually penetrating an unconscious person with a foreign object. At the sentencing hearing, Miller read a powerful and lengthy statement about the effect the assault had on her life.

Turner, then 20, served just three months despite prosecutors fighting for a six-year sentence.

Miller's book is set to be released in bookstores September 24.

On January 18, 2015, at about 1 a.m., Turner raped Miller behind a Dumpster near an on-campus fraternity.

For the first time since her 2015 rape, Miller is telling her story not from behind a curtain of anonymity, but as herself - attributed and for the record - in the aptly titled, "Know My Name".

Miller's interview will be on September 22.

Eighteen female Congresswomen read the statement on the floor of the House of Representatives.

"One more time, in public news, I learned that my ass and vagina were completely exposed outside, my breasts had been groped, fingers had been jabbed inside me along with pine needles and debris, my bare skin and head had been rubbing against the ground behind a dumpster, while an erect freshman was humping my half naked, unconscious body", Miller's testimony continued.

"Many victims of sexual violence are subjected to the same bad treatment by courts and universities that Ms Miller experienced", Ms Dauber said.

That decision, by Judge Aaron Persky, was met with outrage. Persky was the first California judge to be recalled in more than 80 years. She shared her story in court, detailing how she was unconscious and had no memory of much of the night. A tougher sentence the judge said "would have had a severe impact him" and the judge did not feel Turner was a danger to others. She implored Persky to hand down a harsh sentence.

Two Swedish students, who were cycling past at the time, intervened when they noticed Ms Miller was not moving.
