When the conviction was confirmed on charges of being molested in a public place, the Constitutional Court's decision was made that the provisions of the law that required personal information to be registered with the police would not violate the Constitution.

He said that it was unconstitutional for Mr. A, who was found guilty of being molested at a subway station, to register his personal information, made a constitutional decision with a 6 (constitutional) vs. 3 (unconstitutional) opinion.

Mr. A was prosecuted for improper physical contact with a woman at a subway station in Seoul in February 2016, and a fine of 3 million won was confirmed.

And, according to the conviction, he became a target for registration of personal information.

Article 42 of the Special Act on the Punishment of Sexual Violence Crimes, etc. requires the police to register personal information when convictions or abbreviated orders are confirmed due to harassment in public places.

Mr. A alleged that this provision violated the right to equality by forcibly registering personal information even for minor crimes.

However, the Constitutional Court believed that there were differences in crimes and crimes compared to sexual crimes that are not subject to personal information registration, such as distribution and possession of pornography by children and youth, in cases of molestation of public places.

The reason for having to register personal information about the crime of molestation in a public place is that there is a reasonable reason.

In addition, he added, "It is difficult to consider the risk of recidivism in addition to conviction while deciding whether to register personal information."

On the other hand, judges Seok-Tae Lee, Young-Jin Lee, and Ki-Young Kim unconstitutionally said, "It is against the principle of minimum infringement because we did not reduce the number of sex crimes subject to registration by making them subject to registration until the illegality or responsibility of the crime is considered minor."
