College #student gets #six-month #jail term for ‘revenge porn’


_________________________

A university student in his 20s was sentenced to six months in prison for sharing with a friend a sex video featuring him and his ex-girlfriend without her consent.

He avoided immediate imprisonment because the court suspended the term for two years. Unless he is convicted of another sexual crime over the next two years, he will be considered to have served his sentence.

The court ordered him to do 80 hours of community service and receive 14 hours of anti-sexual crime education.

According to the Busan District Court, the sex video was recorded when the man and the victim were dating. They broke up in April after a violent quarrel. In a fit of anger while drinking, the man shared the clip with his friend.

The women learned about this later and accused her ex-boyfriend of violating the special acts regarding sexual crime punishment, under which those who cause sexual humiliation to others can face up to three years in jail.
