The Chuncheon District Court Criminal Division 1 스포츠토토(Chief Judge Song Jong-sun) sentenced A (50), who was charged with special injury and assault, to one year in prison and three years of probation, and ordered him to perform 120 hours of community service, it was announced on the 28th.
A grabbed high school student B-gun, 16, who was smoking a cigarette in Chuncheon, Gangwon Province, on the evening of September last year, laid him on a bench and hit him on the head with a large dog collar.
He was also accused of hitting C-kun (16), who was with him, on the neck, chest, and back of the head with the leash, causing two weeks of disfigurement to each.
A-san reportedly saw B-gun and others smoking on a bench and admonished them not to smoke, but when they did not listen, he became angry and committed the crime. Mr. A also hit Mr. D, 26, with a leash when he tried to stop the assault.
“The court took into account that the damage has not been repaired to date, the degree of damage is relatively minor, and there is no history of exceeding the fine,” the court said in explaining the sentence.
