Man Fined for Filming Sex With Student

Perhaps I should have a category called “I’m speechless.” This might be the first entry.

(from the Korea Times)

A court in the southwestern city of Jeonju sentenced a man to a 5-million won ($3,720) fine for filming sex with a female high school student, allegedly done without her knowledge.

The man met a 17-year-old high school student through an Internet chatting room. They went to a motel in Gunsan City, North Jeolla Province, on Jan. 25 last year. He filmed his sex act with her using his cell phone.

After his arrest, he said that it was done by a “mutual consent,” claiming innocence. He subsequently appealed to a higher court for retrial.

“Although the defendant didn’t post the footage on the Internet, he had a previous similar case and he committed the crime again while on probation,” the court verdict explained its reason for upholding the lower court’s sentence.

Since he has a history of having committed similar crimes before, and was on probation to boot, I would not show him any leniency.
