Sex crimes against children rises; Gov’t doesn’t know what to do

Filed under: crime, gender equality — extrakorea @ 7:23 am

Sexual crimes against children has increased 69% since 2004. The government implemented a system of voluntary disclosure of personal information about such types of sexual offenders, but the government itself concedes that very little has come of it. (source)

Here’s a radical idea: How about punishing offending pedophiles with longer sentences? As in, more than 3 and 1-and-a-half years for raping your mentally disabled, teenage niece for seven years, more than two years for molesting your teenage daughter for four years, and more than six months for having sex with an eleven-year-old.

What’s worse, the sentencing for such criminals is becoming, against all logic, more and more lenient.
