On February 13th. the Fukuoka Prefectural Police arrested a man, aged 48, on suspicion of forced obscene behavior with a girl with intellectual disabilities in a toilet. The suspect is reported to have said that he did it “to satisfy sexual desire.”
The ruling was in line with the request of prosecutors, who did not seek the death penalty in consideration of Kojima’s personality disorder. The court concluded that his disorder might have influenced developing his motive as he tends to take things paranoiacally.
