More information is emerging on the Fukuoka school manager indicted for sexual assault and child pornography

crime.jpeg The name of the 69-year-old Fukuoka school manager accused of a range of sexual crimes has still not been given out by the police apparently to protect the victims of his crimes, but more information is beginning to emerge. It appears that he has been detained three times this year - in January on suspicion of violating the child welfare law, in February on charges of violating the anti-child prostitution and child pornography law, and for the third time in March on charges of sexual assault against a female minor.

Japan Today reports: 'According to police, the man had admitted to the allegations, but justified his action by saying he had done it “so that the girls would have a better sex life in the future.” Aera reports: “He would tell people he was giving English lessons at his home, and they took it for granted that’s what he was doing,” recalls a local housewife, from an encounter seven years earlier. 'When he drove home, there would almost always be a student beside him in the front seat,” the housewife adds. “Sometimes primary schoolers, sometimes older. And always girls.'
