 The court said, "The content of the crime was very disrespectful and it seems that the physical and mental pain that the mother must have felt was considerable." pointed out.

"However, considering the fact that the victim's mother does not want to punish A and all the sentencing factors such as A's age, sexuality, and environment, finally, I will give a fine punishment to A." We decided on the amount of the fine considering that we are completely financially dependent on our mother."
