The Supreme Court on Thursday reaffirmed a lower court's suspended jail sentence for a man found guilty of raping a transgender woman, Yonhap reported.
The Supreme Court maintained a three-year suspended jail term for the 29-year-old man, who was indicted on charges of raping a 58-year-old transgender woman after breaking into her home in the southern port city of Busan in August 2008.
The article says she underwent the operation 30 years ago, but remains legally a male because she hasn't filed the paperwork.
This seems in line with the new sentencing guidelines we read about a couple weeks ago, and you'll recall the first case:
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.
