The court issued the warrant citing concerns that the suspect might destroy evidence or flee the country.
I’ve got to be honest, though—I hope the prosecutors have got more than this:
During questioning, Private R reportedly admitted to stealing the notebook, but denied the sexual assault, saying Miss A first offered in English to perform a sexual act (the Korean term is a euphemism often referring to oral sex or non-penetrative sex acts).
Prosecutors, however, filed for a detention warrant on Dec 2, based on the fact that Miss A is not sufficiently proficient in English to make the first offer and the National Forensic Service found Private R’s fluids on Miss A’s underwear.
You know, with all the crap the prosecutors have been getting themselves into lately, you’d think they’d know you don’t need a TOEIC score of 900 to make that sort of offer.
If the GI did actually assault the girl, I hope for her sake the prosecutors are bringing more to the game than that.
Prosecutors plan to indict the suspect within 24 hours of after is detention.
