A man in his 80s who was arrested on charges of sexually assaulting an elementary school student on the way to school has been sentenced to a severe sentence.
Previously, the man had a previous criminal record of sexually harassing a child under the age of 13 in 2017 and 2018, respectively.

The sentence was announced on the 20th.
In addition, it was ordered to wear electronic anklets for 20 years, employment restrictions for children, adolescents and persons with disabilities for 10 years, and to disclose and notify personal information for 10 years.

However, Mr. Kim admitted only molestation, saying, "I was not erected at the time of the crime," and denied the rape charge.
