US GI in SKorea gets 10 years in prison for rape

The AP reports that a “US GI in SKorea gets 10 years in prison for rape”:

A South Korean court sentenced a U.S. soldier to 10 years in prison Tuesday for raping a teenage girl — the second harshest punishment handed down to a convicted American soldier here in nearly 20 years.

Uijeongbu District Court convicted 21-year-old Pfc. Kevin Flippin of sexually assaulting the 16-year-old girl numerous times after breaking into her small boarding room near Seoul in September, court spokesman Lee Sang-yup said.

Flippin committed many “sadistic and sexually perverted acts” while threatening the girl with a pair of scissors, a knife and a lighter, Lee said. The soldier robbed the girl of 5,000 won ($4.50) as well, he said.

The court verdict said the girl felt “terrified and sexually humiliated,” according to Lee.

The case, along with a separate rape allegation by a teenage girl against another U.S. soldier, prompted top U.S. military and government officials to offer public apologies.

PFC Kevin Lee Flippin is scum bag who tortured and raped minor girl. He need to be listed in pedophile alert and registered as child sex addict when he is released from the jail. His home address is 13333 W. Dripping Springs Rd. Columbia, MO. 65202 Phone 573-874-0116 landline. He was grown up in trailer park home but doesn’t have to act like one. His father William M Flippin and mother Ronetta J. Flippin aren’t responding to reporters and didn’t apologize to girl’s parent’s yet. What a scum bags.
