'Educational sexual assault allegation' 80-year-old man "never did that" vs. Prosecutor's office "consistent statement of victim girl"

An 80-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting an elementary school girl on the way home several times denied the charge, saying "there was no actual sexual assault" at the first trial.



On the 28th, the first criminal settlement of the Namyangju Branch of the Uijeongbu District Court (Chief Judge Ok-hee Park) held the first trial against Kim (83), a defendant who was handed over to trial on charges of abduction of adultery and sexual assault and forced molestation of a minor under the age of 13.



On April 27, Kim was accused of sexually assaulting elementary school student A, who was attending school in a residential area in Gyeonggi-do, by approaching her with the word "pretty" and taking her home.



On the day of the crime, the police arrived after receiving a report from Miss A, and immediately arrested Kim and arrested him.



At the first trial, Kim's lawyer admitted the charges of adultery, abduction and forced molestation, but strongly denied the allegations of sexual assault.



Kim's lawyer argued, "At the time of the crime, there was no actual sexual assault due to the sexual function problem of the accused, and as a result of the analysis by the National Forensic Service, DNA and semen reaction of the accused did not appear in the victim's body."



He further said, "The victim is young and may not know much about sexual activity. As the accused is old and has the potential to develop dementia, the order to attach an electronic device requested by the prosecution is not appropriate."



However, the prosecution immediately refuted, saying, "The victim accurately remembers and states the defendant's crime."



The presiding judge judged, "Even if the victim does not understand the meaning of the specific sexual act, there were no logical contradictions or lies in the statement, and it is a concrete and reliable statement.



During the trial, it was confirmed that Viagra, an erectile dysfunction drug, was found in Kim's blood taken two days after the crime.



Earlier, during the investigation, it was confirmed that Kim had stated, "I wanted to touch a girl for a moment because my family was depressed in the hospital."


It's already the 3rd time only child sexual offenses caught...

In 2018, the court imposed a fine for old age


This is not the first time Kim has been accused of child sexual abuse.



In 2017 and 2018, he was sentenced to probation and a fine for molesting elementary school girls, respectively.



In particular, even in 2018, the court judged that there was no risk of recidivism on the grounds that Kim was diagnosed with dementia at an old age and had been faithfully living as a public official, despite Kim committing a child sex crime again during the probation period. and sentenced to a fine.

The disclosure of personal information was also exempted.



However, in the trial records at the time, it was confirmed that Kim's official dementia diagnosis was not submitted as a list of evidence.



Four years after receiving such mercy, Mr. Kim stood in court on charges of sexually assaulting Miss A while she was attending school.



On the other hand, in relation to this case, it is known that Kim's side has submitted a statement of opinion on panic disorder and dementia to the court.



The next trial will be held in the same court on August 9th.
