The Seoul Central District Court also gave its first ruling based on the guidelines. A 26-year-old man surnamed Kim was sentenced last Friday to a suspended sentence of three years for breaking into a house and raping the occupant.
So the guidelines say to suspend the sentences of rapists, or they say to sentence them to 3 years (still too little) and the judge used his discretion anyway and suspended the sentence?If these guidelines are not binding, what's the point? Judges will do what they will, as they've always done.Useless.
