Well, it’s good to know where the limits lie

So, just to be clear, it’s OK for a teacher to have sex with a 12-year-old student as long as the student wants it?

A teacher in his 20s had sex with a 12-year-old student, but wasn’t prosecuted because she protected him, police said Thursday.

The teacher, a 29-year-old single man, started to have sex with the girl months after he began teaching at an elementary school in Gangneung, Gangwon Province, late last year.

Police launched an investigation after their relationship was revealed. However, the girl asked police not to punish him, saying she had sex because she loved him.

Police subsequently dropped the case.

UPDATE: Media pressure can be a good thing sometimes—the cops have decided to arrest the teacher after all.

    What did the parents of the kid have to say?

    Any teacher having sex with their students should be fired, period. That includes college.

    Just to be clear, the guy in this case WAS fired.

    How do I find out his name?

    The authorities in his home country would still be very, very interested in putting him away for a long time.

    I would love to assist them.

    Oh Just wait!!! It WASN’T a foreigner – it was a single Korean teacher…

    I wonder how much he paid the girls family????

    The update is it exactly. The media pressure and outside eyes have an effect. Remember, this is a shame culture as opposed to a guilt culture. I know that some gyopos are going to disagree with me, but its the onlooking eyes (either someone high enough up on the Confucian ladder or the sum of a myriad pairs of lowly eyes) that make this a crime in a shame culture.

    They should of arrested him in the first place. It was statutory rape.
