Law school student caught for taking upskirt photos

A law school student who had been caught three times for secretly taking upskirt photos was sentenced to one year in prison without probation, Seoul Central District Court said Tuesday.

The court ruling came after the 32-year-old law school student, surnamed Han, was caught taking photographs of female shoppers in Seoul’s Jongno district on July 30.

He had used his smartphone to take photos of more than 100 women at a shopping mall.

This is the third time Han has been indicted. He had previously been involved in two similar cases, the court said.

In 2013, Han was fined 2 million won ($1,800) for taking upskirt photos. Two years later, he was sentenced to one year in prison with two years of probation under the same charge, but appealed to a higher court.
