Recently, rulings that have been sentenced to probation in a sexual assault case have been controversial.

The reaction is, 'Is it reasonable to go home on probation even after committing such a crime?

If you look at the articles, you can easily find sentences such as:

'The punishment is decided in consideration of the fact that the victim does not want to be punished by making an amicable agreement with the victim.'

In addition to the sentences for each crime set by the law, judges refer to and respect the 'sentencing standards' set by the Supreme Court Sentencing Committee.

After classifying the types of crimes, we are making recommendations to the effect that it is desirable to basically give a sentence of several years for that type.

However, in this sentencing standard, there are factors that reduce or increase the sentence, and the representative one is 'no punishment', usually 'agreement'.

It means that the victim does not want to be punished. Usually, they receive a settlement money from the perpetrator for the purpose of compensating for the damage, and they write a document stating that they do not want to pay any more civil damages and that they do not want to be punished criminally.

If the victim agrees and submits a non-punishment petition to the court, it is a structure that serves as a factor to reduce the perpetrator's sentence. Is this okay as it is?

Video Mug pointed out how the victim came to submit an application for non-punishment, and whether there are any side effects due to the non-punishment acting as a mitigation factor.
