Slap on the wrist for shocking crime


Draconian punishment for immoral crime.

Obviously a crime which deserves jail, but 18 (!) years for this?

Yep. All the hallmarks of a predator. Hopefully they caught him before it had progressed beyond photos and videos.

I’m not sure of the particular case but someone said one problem with civil law is that the judge doesn’t have to rule by precedent. But as far as I know criminal cases in Taiwan are judged by a panel of 3 judges. Not corruption proof but it’s something.

This seems to be a case of sexual predator and so they may see the need to hand down a harsh sentence. The judgment will include justification, so you really have to read it to know why the judge handed down the sentence.
