Police have arrested an 18-year-old boy for having sex with a 17-year-old girl, charging him with child prostitution.

Tochigi police charged the 18-year-old schoolboy with child prostitution after he “knowingly” (in fact it is illegal whether known or unknown) promised to pay ¥10,000 to a 17-year-old schoolgirl for sex, which the couple subsequently engaged in.

Police report that he admits the charges. Once convicted, he faces a maximum of 5 years in prison and a fine of no more than ¥3,000,000.

Online the Japanese are as usual unable to comprehend the application of their own often bizarrely applied sex crime laws:

“What was wrong with this? If you can arrest him for this, everyone’s going to be arrested.”

“I don’t understand why someone would pay a girl their own age for sex.”

“I don’t get it. Was it the money changing hands which caused problems? Why not just offer her a meal?”

“If he was arrested without actually having paid her anything it is pretty harsh.”

“It’s a crime even if you don’t pay them. Really messed up law.”

“If you’re 18, do it normally!”

“I suppose they should just arrest everyone under 18 who has had sex.”

“No wonder our birth rate is so low.”

“This is just sad. Don’t young people in this country have any freedom?”

“Get cheated by a whore and you can expect to go to jail.”

“[Quoting the letter of the law] The chil prostitution laws define a child as anyone under 18, so if you pay for sex with them…”

“The problem was that he paid for it. If he had done her for free they wouldn’t have arrested him.”

“Give her a present in exchange for sex = no problem.

Give her money in exchange for sex = be arrested.

So just give her gift certificates in future.”

“Presents count as compensation for the purposes of the law.

You can’t give her so much as a strap for her mobile phone.”

“So buying a girl a meal and taking her to a hotel is a crime?”

“This makes any dating where you buy someone a meal prostitution.”

“So practically all minors who are dating are guilty of child prostitution as they have given gifts to each other?”

“Another prostitute playing the victim card to get a guy arrested.”

“Why don’t they ever arrest the seller as well?”

“This is like busting the buyer in a drug deal but letting the seller go every time.”

“They should arrest the girl too, it’s not like he raped her. For all we know she may have pressured him into agreeing.”

“So if the ages were reversed, they’d arrest her? I wonder.”

“So now we have 18-year-olds paying each other for sex. You’re supposed to coax them into it!”

“I can kind of understand some old guy doing this, but an 18-year-old doing it is just sad…”

“The 18-year-old kid probably said he’d pay her but didn’t, so the 17-year-old slut tattled on him to the cops.”

“For ¥10,000 you could just go to a soapland…”

“If it was Tochigi they don’t have trains or anything there, he could have just been paying her travel expenses. Imagine having to take a 15km taxi ride into another town.”

“Kind of strange to ban money changing hands but allow things like Christmas presents.”

“What’s important is how this came to light. Did she rat on him after a problem with payment? Or did they get busted using a deaikei site?”

“She might have got herself busted from other customers and only then did he come to light when she shopped them all in to police.”

“And to think you can marry girls at 16.”

You lot have got the wrong end of the stick here. He was busted for exchanging something for sex with a JK [high school girl]. If they were really dating it wouldn’t be a problem. Even a 50-year-old dating a JK would be OK.”

“That’s not true – I know a guy who was in his early twenties and dated a JK, and after they split she hated him and reported him to police and they arrested him. The sex itself was a crime. He could never trust women after that.”

“Enko amongst actual school kids is just sad. Do it once you’ve become some fat old guy. For boys it’s supposed to be free.”

“School kids buying and selling one another. Sad.”

    Does the word "entrapment" ring a deafening bell here?? Because that's what it sounds like.

    It seems like everytime this "illegal sex" thing happens, one of the pair gets away with no punishment.

    Thats probably why some of them keep on trying, because they can get away with it.

    Why cant those law makers see the problem with this?

    Then again, I would really like to see a case where both of them are under 18 happen.

    The Police cant do a damn thing about it because both of them are minors.

    That might be a good way to spite them with their idiocy and all.

    Had a local case in Sweden 1-2 years ago where this 13 yo dude had a relationship with a 15 yo girl or so. Went on for about 2 years or so, they love each other all nice and dandy... Then the dude's parents find out, and drag the whole thing to court. The thing was dropped due to well, the couple being ok with it, but as a result the girl had to move away since everyone knew her. The damn parents I tell you...

    I remember seeing this happen in Taiwan already, that 17-years-old boy has sex with 14-years-old girl.
    I... forgot what is the result to them already. If I were not wrong, the boy got his punishment, but the girl got away, despite the fact that both of them are willing: or so I remembered.

    It's always the female child prostitute that gets away with it. I don't see why they should be allowed to. If anything they should be even more severely punished.

    They'll arrest the person trying to arrest them, but in fact be arrested by the person who was being arrested by themselves, who was being arrested in the first place. Wrap your head around that.

    You mean from a personal moral standpoint?
    Since when it comes to japanese law the age of consent for girls is usually 16-17 depending on what prefecture you're in.
    A girl can legally get married at 16 so long as she has her parents consent as well.

    The only reason this was a criminal act was because he paid her and they had straight sex. That's the simple fact.

    if you're over 18 years old, you should know better to have sex with someone underage. It's not like it bothers me, it's just common sense.

    Or, you could be like me, and find a girl that won't turn your ass in. it isn't a situation I find myself in often. Just use better judgement. it is his own fault so i don't feel sorry for him.

    The crime here is prostitution and is modified by her age. We don't know from this if there are statutory rape charges on file, if it's considered to be a lesser charge subsumed into a larger, or if his relationship with her would be considered acceptable without payment. Different prefectures can set the age of consent where they want it set, even up to eighteen.

    @Ryuhouji You don't seems to understand in japan age of consent is 16.

    Although 17 is above the age of consent, under the law if the boy had given her anything (even a stick of gum) it is still 'compensation' and he would still be arrested for under-age prostitution.

    It's scary that an ex-girlfriend could report you if she was underage and the police would actually co-operate....

    you do realise that once u are 18 u are considered an adult. Anyone under is considered a minor, which the girl is. Now the problem is actually not their age since the age of consent in japan is what 13?,
    the problem is the money that was used. 18 is the legal age for prostitution.

    Prostitution is illegal in Japan at any age. In fact it's illegal in most of Asia at any age.

    you cannot bring american's version of adulthood into the picture. In Japan, you have to 20 to become an adult, otherwise, you're still considered a minor.

    Better not. They'll put bullets into the heads of anyone who dare to do that, then quickly close that case and proclaim it as a suicide by saying the dead heard the voice of the demon talking in his head before shooting his own head multiple times with a gun.

    Some police men probably could use a forced retirement.
    Ie give them the boot, hand over what ever pension they have earned even though they do not deserve it and point them to the unemployment line.
    Oh and blackball them from ever holding another police officer position or any security guard position that allows them to carry a firearm.

    Wait, boy is 18
    Girl is 17
    Arrested for child prostitution

    Another day of muthafuckery in the world, folks...
