A 22-year-old single mother from Takamatsu City, Japan has just been arrested for being caught having intimate relations with a 12 year-old boy.
According to reports, the woman and the minor met through online mobile game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG). It was there that they struck an unlikely friendship. The boy eventually ran away from home to be with the woman, and they allegedly engaged in intercourse.
The woman even posted intimate photos of them online.
The woman’s apartment where she was arrested
She was soon caught by the police at her apartment and will be taken to a specialized medical institution in Kansai to receive counseling and treatment for pedophilia. She was also barred from making any contact with the boy or his family.
According to a report on Setn, the woman was never lucky with men as most of the men she’s ever been with were either abusive or liked to cheat. She claimed to be “mentally exhausted” and did not feel loved.
The trial for her case will be resumed on September 2019.
According to Japanese law, sexual intimacy with minors (under 13 years old), even if consensual, is a serious offense.
