Pedophile to undergo chemical castration

Korea will use chemical castration on a convicted repeat child molester for the first time, an official said Wednesday.

The Ministry of Justice said the process will start Friday at the earliest for the 45-year-old man who was convicted of four counts of sexual assault on girls under 13.

This will be the first case of chemical castration on a child molester since the bill was passed in July 2011.

“The man fits all the categories for the forced medical treatment,” said Kim Hee-gyung, a prosecutor at the Crime Prevention Policy Bureau under the ministry.

The law states a convict may be subject to chemical castration if they have the potential to commit sex offenses against minors repeatedly. The potential subjects are ones who have assaulted children aged under 16 and are diagnosed with pedophilia, an intense sexual desire toward children.

The man, surnamed Park, committed sexual assault against minors four times since 1984. Three of the four victims were 10-year-old girls, including one whom he dragged to a deserted plant on Aug. 2, 2002 and abused sexually and also attempted to rape.

Point well taken. The current state of the country isn’t exactly trustworthy. Guilty get off free and clear as with the New Black Panthers and people that should be left free are in the fight of their life as with Zimmerman.

My other thought on the matter is that if the accusation is true, and the conviction is righteous, and the creep actually did rape kids ... repeatedly ...

Hang him by the neck until he is dead, then leave his carcass twisting slowly in the wind.

Do I remember reading somewhere that chemical castration is temporary? And that if he doesn’t show up for his periodic shots, it wears off?

Chemical castration is the administration of medication designed to reduce libido and sexual activity. Unlike surgical castration, where the testicles or ovaries are removed through an incision in the body,[1] chemical castration does not actually castrate the person, nor is it a form of sterilization. [2]

Chemical castration is generally considered reversible when treatment is discontinued, although permanent effects in body chemistry can sometimes be seen, as in the case of bone density loss increasing with length of use of Depo Provera.[3] Chemical castration has, from time to time, been used as an instrument of public and/or judicial policy despite concerns over human rights and possible side effects.[4][5]
