Straight from S.Korea:TKD asst instructor molest and give 9 year old STD
I was reading up on my news from Korea and this one popped out. Pretty disturbing and a pretty frigging light sentence in my opinion. Link is in Korean and below is my crappy quick translations for it in English.
A sentence was delivered to assistant TKD instructor for sexually molesting and transmitting STD to a 9 year old girl. Seoul 7th division criminal high court handed out a sentence of 7 year jail term, 20 year electronic monitoring, identity release to public for 10 years, ban from playground, and 80 hours of program for therapy of sexual violence.
Justice noted that if it was not for details of the crime and the depth of assault described by the third grader (in elementary school) would not have been so graphic and detailed unless she experienced them herself.
Also after the event occurred, the victim was positive for ureaplasma? (germ that causes infection) and the convicted criminal was positive for same germ and strain made it justified that the victim was infected by the convict.
However out of 3 sexual assault, 1 of the assault was overturned due to time differential. (I cut out lot of details...getting tired of translating :P)
Convicted criminal threatened the victim by telling her he will turn her over to police for fraud for not paying the fees for the classes. With that he forced her to come to the dojang after hours and sexually assaulted her three times and transmitted STD caused by ureaplasma? germ.
Editor Note: In Korea, age is counted on new year so by US standard the girl could have been 8 years old (birthday not passing and if crime took place early in the year).
