A man in his twenties who stole underwear by inserting his hand through a window of a woman's house in the middle of the night has been sentenced to probation in the second trial. 

According to the legal community on the 5th, the Seoul Eastern District Court's Criminal Settlement Section 3 (Chief Judge Heo Il-seung) sentenced A (27), who was handed over to the trial on charges of trespassing and theft at night, sentenced to 1 year in prison and 2 years of probation.

He also ordered probation and 80 hours of community service. 

A is accused of following a woman walking down the street near a multi-family house in Songpa-gu, Seoul at the dawn of July last year, ripping off a screen on the veranda of her house, and putting her hand through a security window to steal 12 items, including underwear and skirts.

The court of first instance sentenced A to 6 months in prison and 2 years of probation, but the prosecution appealed, saying the sentence was light. 

The second trial court increased the prison sentence compared to the first trial and explained the reason for the sentencing, saying, "The victim is still concerned about the defendant's recidivism and is complaining of fear and anxiety."   

It is known that A has a history of being sentenced to a fine for theft in the past.
