A taxi driver who allegedly raped a woman while asking for a date when ‘insufficient balance’ appeared on a female passenger’s check card was sentenced to a suspended sentence in prison.
According to the legal community on the 10th, the 11th Criminal Division of the Gwangju District Court (presiding judge Koh Sang-young) sentenced taxi driver A, who was handed over to trial on charges of similar rape and indecent assault, to one year in prison and two years of probation the day before.

The 1st Criminal Division of the Daejeon District Court (Presiding Judge Na Gyeong-seon) sentenced Mr. C (54), who was charged with indecent assault, to eight months in prison.
The incident occurred in Seo-gu, Daejeon around 1 am on May 2 last year.

At the same time, he dragged Miss D into an alley and sexually molested her, such as hugging her.
The first trial court sentenced him to 10 months in prison, saying, “The crime is bad considering the considerable fear and shame the victim must have felt when he was raped by a strange taxi driver late at night in an uninhabited alley.” However, Mr. C, who was dissatisfied with the verdict of the first trial, filed an appeal, and the sentence was commuted according to his will.
Regarding this, the appellate court said, “The taxi driver, who must prioritize the safety of his customers, committed an indecent crime against a teenage female customer, and the crime is bad.” We considered the need to support,” he said.
