Disabled person imprisoned for 10 years…
“I can’t go out without a guardian”

“I have seen cases where a mild-mannered intellectually handicapped person was sentenced to six months in prison for stealing a piggy bank several times. These are the words of an official from the National Justice Hospital (Chungnam Gongju Treatment Detention Center), which detains and treats the mentally and physically handicapped (mental and developmental disorders) for criminal offenses. Being imprisoned several times the sentence is not uncommon in a treatment center. Apart from the sentence set by the court, in a treatment detention center, you can be detained for up to 15 years (21 years for murder). The cases confirmed by the Minority Team of the Hankook Ilbo alone are cases in which they were imprisoned for 8 or 11 times the sentence.
