저질 Korean Student Blackmails Woman with Sex Video, Charged with Child Porn

Just when you think you’ve blogged it all:

A southern Kentucky college student tried to force a young woman to send him a sexually graphic video of herself after he stole log-in information from several computers, a federal grand jury has charged.

Sungkook Kim, 23, was indicted Thursday on 15 counts of sending threatening e-mails to the woman in October and November.

The grand jury also charged Kim with illegally accessing other people’s e-mail accounts, possessing identification belonging to others, and possessing child pornography.

Kim, who is from South Korea, was a student at the University of the Cumberlands when he allegedly tried to extort the video from a female student. The university expelled him, according to a court document.

Kim was arrested in November. Earlier this month, U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Wier ordered him held without bond.

So, what exactly did young Mr. Kim do?

Kim told authorities that he was in the university science lab more than a year ago when he noticed someone had failed to log off a computer, according to a sworn statement from Donnie D. Kidd, an FBI agent.

Kim said he looked on the computer said found an e-mail with an attached video clip of a young woman having sex, and saved it to a thumb drive, Kidd said.

Kidd said Kim also admitted placing software on several university computers that captured data on keystrokes, allowing him to get other people’s log-in and password information.

On Oct. 1, a female student told police in Williamsburg that someone was trying to force her to make a video of herself masturbating and send it to him, Kidd said.

The student had gotten an e-mail that said the sender had four Web cam clips of her having sex with a young man, and that if she didn’t make a video for him, he would send the clips to her friends and professors, according to Kidd’s statement.

I hate when that happens. For his part, Kim says he never intended to send the videos to her friends. He just wanted to teach the girl a lesson. Of course, he’d still have to explain this:

When police searched Kim’s computer at his home in Williamsburg, they found a file showing girls younger than 12 being raped by adult men, Kidd said in his affidavit.

Kim denied possessing child pornography, but told Kidd he is addicted to porn, Wier said in his order.

Before the English teacher crowd asks — rightfully so — what the Korean press reaction would be had this been an English teacher in Korea, I direct you to these golden oldies:

    You stand on the shoulders of giants, Mr. Kim.

    Kim Ilsung,
    Kim Yongsam
    Kim Daejung
    Kim Robert

    Let’s all at least acknowledge that John Ashcroft was an exemplary public servant.

    He is the one who made the child porno lovers go into hiding.

    USA recently denied signing a statement that deals with homos or something like that. Obama will eventually sign it.

    after the gay thing, I think child porn lovers along with beast sex lovers will eventually claim that it is a genetic trait, they have rights being violated, and they should be allowed to have sex with ‘consenting’ children.

    Hopefully, somebody will step up and stop them.

    no doubt the money charge here is the child porn rap.

    it’s like catching a guy speeding, and finding weed in his trunk.

    Riiight – that sounds more than a little like his ‘Yeah, it’s true that I put keystroke-copying software on the computers, but I swear her email account was already open’ defense.

    #2 – “no doubt the money charge here is the child porn rap.”

    Indeed.

    “it’s like catching a guy speeding, and finding weed in his trunk.”

    More like finding a dead body or explosive device in the trunk.

    What I don’t get is, if we download music for free we are killing the music industry, but if we download CP for free we are supporting the CP industry.

    Bare minimum bid of 7 years.

    Wow. A sex offender in a Kentucky prison. I don’t know whether to say run rabbit run or hello pillow.

    I think, “Hello, pillow”, will be the more likely if he gets convicted.

    #6, I agree, but I’m betting it’s going to be 5-10 for the porn charge, then another year for each additional charge.

    the big question is, will Kentucky deport him, or make an example of him?

    What’s the extradition treaty between the US and Korea? I thought I heard somewhere the Canada-Korea treaty involves serving at least a partial sentence in the country of conviction…
