Teenage A was out in front of the house in May 2020 after receiving an offer from her friend B to play together.
Mr. C (21) and others will pick her up. Shortly after receiving the call, “I will join later,” a car with C and others arrived in front of A.
Ms. A was new to Mr. C, and she hesitated to go home because she only knew her face with two other people.
However, due to C’s continued urging, he boarded the vehicle and moved with them.
Those who bought seven bottles of soju, four to five bottles of beer, and snacks at a nearby convenience store headed to an unmanned hotel in Gangwon Province at dawn.
A, who drank about a bottle of soju while drinking in a motel room, recommended that she continue to drink even though she refused, saying, “I don’t want to drink anymore.”
In the process, C and others forced “I’ll drink for you, so please grant your wish,” “Take off your top because we drank for you,” and “If you don’t, we’ll take it off,” and pressed A to carry out the order by starting a game that causes sexual acts.
Soon after, C quietly whispered to the other party in the motel to avoid their seats.
Under the pretext of a game at a drinking party, he was planning to sexually assault A, demanding sex.
When the group was away, saying they were going to buy cigarettes, C forced A to have sex, saying, “Don’t you have any wishes left in return for drinking?”
In response, A ran away to the bathroom, saying, “Please don’t.”
To avoid this situation, A called her friend B in the bathroom and urgently asked when she was coming, and contacted other friends to ask for help.
However, Mr. C, who had been chasing Ms. A, took her cell phone and turned off the power, and threatened, “There is no one to help you right now, so let’s be quiet and end it.”
C, who dragged A toward the bed, committed sex crimes after preventing A from resisting.
In the end, C, who was in court for violating the law on the protection of children and adolescents, argued during the trial that “I only agreed with A and had sex, and there was no intention.”
However, the first trial court sentenced C to two and a half years in prison, saying, “The crime is not good in light of the fact that the defendant intentionally committed the crime, forced sexual acts, and even had sex.”
D, who committed similarities in the same place, was sentenced to one year in prison and two years in probation, and B, who inflicted secondary harm by spreading false rumors about the victim, was sentenced to six months in prison and two years in probation.
Among them, C appealed against the ruling on the grounds of misunderstanding of facts.
However, the decision to dismiss the appeal was made because he did not submit the reason for the appeal to the appellate court within the deadline, and it was found that C recently submitted an immediate appeal.
