It will be interesting to see what happens with this case considering how prior US soldiers that were sexually assaulted and raped by Koreans received little to no justice. It will also be interesting to see how different the punishment will be for this crime when compared to sentences the soldiers who have assaulted elderly Koreans including one this weekend in Uijongbu received.
