Supreme Court Decision 2009Do2576

The Supreme Court found the act of an elementary school teacher (“Defendant”) conducting a health examination to constitute “disgraceful conduct” as stipulated in Article 8-2(5) of the Act on the Punishment of Sexual Crimes and Protection of Victims (against minors aged 13 and below). The Supreme Court stated that even though the Defendant may not have subjective motive or purpose to “stimulate, stir up, and satisfy his sexual desire because such act was made in front of the students going with her, the Defendant’s act can be evaluated as disgraceful conduct.”
