A nursery school teacher who was sentenced to imprisonment in the first trial on charges of habitually abusing one or two-year-old children was commuted on appeal.
The 3rd Criminal Division of the Gwangju District Court (Appeal Division, Chief Judge Kim Tae-ho) was indicted for violating the Act on Special Cases concerning the Punishment of Child Abuse Crimes (aggravated punishment of child abuse by workers in child welfare facilities, etc.) and sentenced to one year in prison in the first trial. Teacher A (49, female) announced on the 13th that he broke the original judgment and sentenced him to one year in prison and two years of probation.
The court maintained the order to take 40 hours of child abuse prevention lectures and to restrict employment for three years at child-related organizations.
The court pointed out, “Combining the fact that Mr. A has reached an agreement with the victim and showed an attitude of self-reflection through detention for a certain period of time, the sentence of the trial court is rather heavy and unreasonable.”
Person A was handed over to trial for physically and emotionally abusing three children aged 1 to 2 years old 13 times between May 28 and July 23 last year at the daycare center where she works.
A was found to have injured parts of the children’s bodies by hitting them several times with fists and palms. The children were beaten on the head with a plate and shaken by the ears, or they were punished by standing alone in a corner of the classroom for 30 minutes.
Mr. A said, ‘I don’t spill or eat properly. You don’t clean your plate properly. He repeated acts that deviated from the legal method of discipline for reasons such as ‘not taking a nap’.
The presiding judge of the first trial judged the sentence in consideration of the fact that Mr. A has neglected his responsibility to protect the children so that they can grow up in a healthy and emotionally stable state, the quality of the crime due to multiple abuses, and the intent to plead severe punishment by the victims’ parents. explained that it was determined.
