Woman makes up infidelity for compensation in divorce

The district court in northern Seoul of Uijongbu said the making up stories to gain larger compensation in a divorce deserve heavy punishment. In November last year, the court thus sentenced a 49-year-old woman to two years in prison for infidelity. She is currently serving her term in a prison in Uijongbu.

The woman is appealing the case. She is insisting that she was actually abducted and sexually abused and that she did not deliberately engage in actions for securing heavy compensation in her divorce.

The main issue is the contrasting evidence of her having an affairs with a young man and taking pictures of the relationship as evidence of sexual abuse or if she was in fact abducted and sexually assaulted through no fault of her own.
