A local court on Wednesday slapped a suspended sentence with probation on a school bus driver who allegedly exposed an 11-year-old girl to a pornographic video while on a school bus.
According to the Gwangju District Court in South Jeolla Province, the school bus driver of an elementary school in Wando was found to have sexually humiliated the student and showed her a pornographic video on his cellphone in May 2015.
Although the judge Gwang Gyu-tae referred to the nature of his crime as “severe,” he took into consideration that the defendant has no criminal record of the sort and had not physically abused her.
The defendant managed to avoid prison time, but is subject to 120 hours of community service and has to attend a 40 hour educational program for sex offenders.
