Japan Court Rejects Molestor’s No Sexual Intent Claim

by admin on December 2, 2017


A Japanese man diputed charges of indecency due to the fact his intent was not sexual but financial. The man molested and took naked pictures of a minor in exchange for money from an acquaintance.

According to the Jurist, the Supreme Court sentenced the man to three and a half years in jail, ruling that whether sexual intent was there or not, the man was still guilty of indecency charges.

The ruling follows similar cases around the world to protect minors from sexual assault. For example, India’s Supreme Court ruling for sex with a girl under the age of 18 is considered rape and Lebanon’s Federal Courts abolishing the law that pardoned rapists from prosecution if marrying their victims.

Couples who require a divorce lawyer in Thailand are advised to make sure the marriage was registered in Thailand in order to follow the correct jurisdiction proceedings.
