Article: 'Evil adult neighbors' sexually assault mentally retarded sisters, 4-6 year jail sentence

Source: Yonhap News via Nate

Four adults (ages 50~60) were given prison sentences ranging from 4-6 years for the sexual assault of two sisters in their teens and 20s. One other neighbor who had attempted to rape the eldest sister but failed was given probation.

They had become friends with the parents for the sole purpose of gaining access to their house to abuse the sisters. Mentally, the sisters are at the level of a 4~7 year old, and the assaulters abused the fact that they are not proficient in language enough to explain to their parents what was happening.


A had started by touching the breasts of the youngest daughter, which went unnoticed by the parents. He took it a step further by following the eldest daughter home one summer day and sexually assaulting her.

Another told the parents that they wanted to invite the daughters over to his house for dinner, which ended in the sexual assault of the eldest.

Another called the parents out to treat them at a restaurant while the other sexually assaulted the sisters at home.

Another used the tactic of going over to the sisters' house and asking one of them to go back to his home to fetch a medicine he had accidentally left behind. He'd follow her back home and assault her there.

They were charged for the "quasi-rape of the mentally challenged".

"4-6 years... I don't even know what to say because I'm just so stunned.."

"Disgusting beings... Aren't you scared of the heavens?"

"'Evil adult neighbors'??? Change the title to 'Evil adult neighbors and the judges'... How does it make any sense at all that the people who sexually abused the mentally challenged were only given prison sentences of 4-6 years??? There's clearly something wrong with the judge himself."

"Isn't it time to change the law now...? Please increase the sentence..."

"4-6 years??? Only 4-6 years for these evil criminals who manipulated the weak for their own sexual needs?? What are you going to do about the wounds these kids are suffering from? The ripping pain in the hearts of their parents? It wouldn't be enough to rip them to shreds and yet only 4-6 years? The law is more disgusting than the case!"

"The neighbors aren't the only evil adults here... Clearly the judges are just as evil."

"Not adults, animals."

"The food that will be fed to them in jail is a waste. Just kill them off."

"Probation??? When will there ever be a real punishment?"

"If I had been their father, I wouldn't have reported them to the police... I would've killed them all with my own hands."

They were proven guilty and this is all they get? They should've been jailed forever!!!!

I hope the new president would do something about this. Clearly, the law should be revised.

This just makes me remember the movie Dogani... I had a hard time sleeping for days when I watched it.

this is so wrong :(
I feel so bad for those girls!

The sad thing is that where I live, those people would probably had even LESS time in jail.. around 1,5-2 years maybe. And I am talking about Finland. It's absurd.

fantaesticbaby 18th-Feb-2013 08:19 am (UTC)
4-6 years is a type of sentence that comes from a socially backwards country. wtf sk this is horrible.

I don't understand what the hell is "quasi-rape" and why does it matter they were mentally handicapped. If these were regualr women aged 20 would the punishment have been more or less? I really don't know what the laws in Korea are like for these thing but this is bad when an attempted rapist get's probation. Also in the US judges, except for the supreme court, are elected officials that can lose there seats during elections, is it the same in Korea?
benihime99 Re: questions18th-Feb-2013 10:06 am (UTC)
Usually (talking from the laws in my own country, but I think this would apply to most civil law and common law country), mentally handicapped are legally considered as being more vulnerable and the sentence would be harder for someone committing an offence against vulnerable people (as in child, elderly, mentally handicapped...)

"Also in the US judges, except for the supreme court, are elected officials that can lose there seats during elections, is it the same in Korea?"
If it works like most civil law country then no, judges are not usually elected
I'm not sure if other countries, outside of the US, elect their judges

nana_the_dwarf 18th-Feb-2013 09:13 am (UTC)
It's sad that sentences like these don't even surprise me anymore.
Doesn't mean that it makes me any less angry and resentful.

Poor girls; I hope they get the help they need and I hope all the rotten bastards involved get what they deserve. Some way or another.

Sometimes I really wonder what is wrong with some people to have ideas like that
What is the explanation and is there a cure because this needs to end

I really hope the girls and their family are getting the help and support they need

Mfte. Is it attraction to mentally disabled people or is it the fact that they have the mental capacity of a child and the body of an adult?

Tbh I'm a firm believer in the curing power of death.

I'd like to know how the parents/police/whoever reported it found out...

Wow, I hope someone puts a hit out on this guy.

Sentences like this are so infuriating bc it shows how little the law values women.
jaghatar 18th-Feb-2013 11:17 am (UTC)
for all of you who critizise korean laws should check out your own countries laws very few countries have more than 4-6 years for rape
surfandlurk 18th-Feb-2013 11:23 am (UTC)
I did not indicate in the post that only SK has this kind of law.
That doesn't change the fact that it is a fucked up law.
21banged 18th-Feb-2013 11:30 am (UTC)
omg this shit is ridiculous how can someone only get 4-6 years in prison for doing something so beyond evil. Poor girls, I can't even begin to imagine what they and their family are going through right now :(
weerainbow 18th-Feb-2013 01:04 pm (UTC)
The things people do to their fellow being make me so sad and angry :( I guess at least these people were caught and I hope the sisters and their family will get the help they need, but still that sentence hardly seems appropriate. Unfortunately I hear so often of sentences for horrible crimes that are so short, even in cases where there is little or no remorse. Some days the world just seems such an evil place.

"One other neighbor who had attempted to rape the eldest sister but failed was given probation."

Attempted rape still warrants a sentence heavier than PROBATION. And I refuse to believe this was his one and only attempt at trying to assault the sisters.

This also reminds me of the Junko Furuta's case. This isn't as intense but still--obviously the law all sorts of wtf when sentences to crimes like these aren't that heavy. :|
surfandlurk 18th-Feb-2013 03:11 pm (UTC)
Junko Furuta. OMG. </3 We watched a video dedicated to her in our religion class and I had nightmares for months. And the fact that I saw a picture of her made my nightmares more severe.

what the FUCK is quasi-rape?
rezzypenguin 18th-Feb-2013 04:24 pm (UTC)
Putting those people in prison for life wouldn't be enough to make up the suffering those poor girls had to go through...but even so they all should have been jailed for life at the very least.
age_of_green 18th-Feb-2013 06:45 pm (UTC)
I don't know why rape is given a lesser sentence than murder. Because manslaughter can be involuntary, but rape is always a premeditated act.
