Man sentenced to 5 years in prison for repeated sexual abuse of mentally handicapped minors

Article: Man sentenced to 5 years in prison for the repeated rape of a mentally handicapped woman

Source: Yonhap News via Nate

38 year old man was given a 5 year prison sentence for the habitual sexual assault of a mentally handicapped 15 year old, who he met on an internet chatting site. He force fed her alcohol and then sexually assaulted her.

The court ordered an additional 80 hours of counseling, his personal information be available in public records for 5 years, and that he wear an electronic anklet for 10 years.

The same man has history of receiving a 1 year prison sentence and 2 years of probation for committing a "quasi-indecent act by compulsion" (anyone know wtf this means?) against a 19 year old mentally handicapped woman prior to this case.

1. [+120, 4] Repeated sexual assault and he was only sentenced to 5 years???? Could the judge have made the same decision if it was his daughter in question... What a joke

2. [+96, -3] I heard in other countries, people are sentenced to 15 years for child abuse. Sexual assault gets 5 years? Sexual assault against a mentally handicapped woman? Are you kidding me?

3. [+38, -3] The judge seems to be mentally handicapped himself

4. [+11, -2] A repeat offender... against a minor... mentally handicapped women... He obviously never learned what he did wrong and yet they only gave him 5 years? Do they think these lives are some kind of joke? Even as a man, I'm enraged, I can't even imagine how women feel. 500 years or death, anything less than that is not enough...

"If the judge hadn't given him such a light sentence to begin with, who knows whether he would've been back out and committing the same crime again? It's because they hand out stupid sentences like these that the victim remains the victim in the end. Five years later, that man will be back out repeating the same crimes again."

  6. Disgusting. More disgusting that they prey on mentally handicapped girls because they can't fight back
    Honestly they have to do something about the sexual abuse laws. Light punishments aren't good enough to scared these bastards from not committing these crimes.

  7. Seriously, this is the lowest of the lowest of human beings. I can't even digest this.

  8. He's sentences to a freaking 5 years only? You can't be more stupid aren't you? I guess the judge are mentally handicapped himself -.-

  9. He needs help too. Put him in a mental institution.

  10. Again, I really thought South Korea could have used this case as an example on how they are come down harder on crimes like these. Its really sad because looking at this from another country's POV South Korea does not look like the kind of country you would want to live in because criminals get off too easy. You can get 5 years for shoplifting in the wrong state here, and to see someone get a similar sentence for a more serious crime is just.

    ReplyDelete
  15. 5 freaking years only?
    what the hell....

  16. He should be in jail for life doing that is so bad and horrible what the hell is with their legal system

    ReplyDelete
  17. "his personal information be available in public records for 5 years" is this before or after he serves his measly jail time? And what happens after 5 years? He's not gonna have to register as a sex offender? thats sad. he's attacked once before and he's done it again and he'll probably continue to attack the defenseless...counseling is not going to help this man either...

  18. It's ridiculous how crazy kpop fans dig into the past lives of a celebrity when they get into a scandal (so much stuff dug up from T-ara, for example) but they just post about how disgusted they are and move on with their lives about REAL issues like this. If I had the detective skills of those netizens, I would dig up the lives of those offenders as well as the judge so the offenders can never see the light of day despite their light sentence and the judge will be pressured to give harsher sentences to such terrible crimes because the public will be keeping a closer eye on him.
    I feel suspicious of judges like that... I wonder if they committed similar crimes themselves and give short sentences as a precedent for future crimes in case they ever get caught...

  19. The fuck? -_- The laws over there,really perplex and infuriate me. This guy deserves to rot in jail for all that he is worth...

    ReplyDelete
  20. YES. Especially seeing as how this isn't even his first offense. I don't understand how 5 years is long enough when he obviously didn't learn his lesson the first time.


    If he were in an American prison, he would get his ass beat and raped because child molesters are universally hated.

  21. Seriously, K-netizens ... why don't you use your keyboard warriors' skills with fierce and furious attitude into these kinds of much more awfully critical matters, to demand change in your country's justice system instead of hating on idols with trivial things. It'd be very useful and productive lives of yours for society, you know!

    Exactly. I have no idea why Korea seems so lax with these sexual abuse charges, it only encourages victims into not admitting what happened, and it also allows these monsters to be released into the streets. This disgusting excuse of a man needs life in prison. Not to mention, he's a REPEAT OFFENDER. Let him rot. 5 years is absolutely nothing.

  23. Send the guy to North Korea.

  24. I take it that this guy isn't poor? Same in most countries, he who has cash can afford the better lawyers and pay off victims families. Disgrace do that as a repeat offender he didn't get a longer jail term.

    If this guy was a big good looking successful Kdrama star would people be incensed as much? , Netizens fans of a a certain star investigated for having sex with minors are calling the girls money grabbing sluts for getting their Oppa in trouble. Does that sort of culture encourage kids that have been sexually abused by powerful famous people to go to the Police? Just look at the Saville Scandal in the UK that only broke when the offender was dead because he was too powerful in the media. and his victims were afraid that they would be accused of being money grabbing sluts.

  25. That comment was probably about K-netizens are harsh on anything related to sex or just sarcasm. Koreans are very aware of the flaws of their law. Lots of petitions have been made but it takes a long time to change laws.

  26. if it was here in the us he would b there for life

  27. I don't quite understand, why doesn't the S.K government change their laws? Ugh.

  29. 3. [+38, -3] The judge seems to be mentally handicapped himself



    Either that, or the lawyers or defense attorneys are mentally handicapped. Fuck it, maybe all three of them are.

  30. So many levels of wrong, that guy and the Korean legal system (or that particular judge at least). I was just reading a news article on US News about an ex-bus driver who sexually abused mentally-disabled kids and got 160 years to prison. While the situations are a bit different, the prison sentences are completely opposite like night and day. Just disgusting.

  34. Damn this is so wrong.... government can move aside everything! in order to increase the congressmens' salary but then when it comes to improve the law.....

    And this is not only korea...

  35. Sadly, it's hard to live as a woman in most part of the world. Rape culture and rape apologist are everywhere... there are messed up rules in some countries,like in Afghanistan where the victim has to marry her attacker or else she will be charged with adultery too. :/

    We live in a messed up world.

  37. should be handeled this way as you pointed out.....Man sentenced to just 5 years in prison for repeated sexual abuse of mentally handicapped minors..... when case of this much magnitude and grave the man is is just sentenced to 5 years what fairness can we expect...he should be given life imprisonment or death sentence in all fairnesss.....i also read this comment quote " .. Our country is especially harsh when it comes to sexual assault cases."....had a good laugh about it... i abide with the netizens"Repeated sexual assault and he was only sentenced to 5 years???? Could the judge have made the same decision if it was his daughter in question... What a joke ..the sad reality...

  38. He did it before, and it's a high probability that he'll do it again, and they should be alarmed that he targets the mentally handicapped and his victims are getting younger and younger.

  41. In a country like South Korea is hard for men and women. Except if you are rich.

  42. This. The double standard is disgusting. They have all this power, why don't they use it to help someone instead of causing stupid scandals by zooming in on spoons, for example
