So… a guy in his 40s is running a photo studio.

He uses a timer to photograph female students for their ID photos.

Now, I use a timer—well, exposure delay—to minimize camera shake on landscape shots since my remote is broken. This guy, however, used it to sneak behind the girl, lower his pants, and get a shop of him, his mini-me and the girl all together.

He provided the girls with regular photos, and saved his more artistic shots separately.

He took hundreds of these shots beginning from last year.

In May, he was indicted for violating child protection laws, but according to the Seoul Shinmun, an appeals court recently found him innocent.

Why, you ask? Because there’s apparently no law for what he did.

You see, the perv was charged with producing indecent material using a minor. The law, however, requires a subject that looks like a minor engaging in a sexual act. What we have here, Seoul High Court ruled, is just a guy exposing parts of his body near a minor without their knowledge.

And this was actually a step up—the appeal court at least agreed to hear the case. The lower court through out the indictment because the charges were specific enough.
