He portrayed himself as God, gets 15years Jail Sentence for Rape

A South Korean pastor, name, Lee Jar-rock who portrayed himself as God have been sentenced to 15 years in jail after being found guilty for rape.

Lee Jack-rock who is the leader of Manmin Central Church was indicted for 42 counts of sexual harassment and sexual assault against eight victims.

The 75year old Lee promoted chastity to his 130,000 followers and "deified himself" in sermons, 

He maliciously took advantage of the victims who had absolute faith in his religious authority, and sexually harassed or assaulted the victims who were in their 20s repeatedly for an extended period and even sexually assaulting multiple victims at the same time, says the Seoul Central District Court.

The court found that his followers were unable to resist his advances "due to their absolute faith in the infallibility of the accused."

"The victims were in the psychological status where they absolutely could not resist or at least the resistance was substantially difficult," the release said.

"Judging from the circumstances, though the accused did not call himself the 'holy spirit' or 'god' in an official place, in the smaller gathering or personal education sessions, he had been teaching the followers directly, and indirectly, that he is the holy spirit, or God."

Lee denied all charges, and argued that the victims may have been motivated "by money" to provide false testimony. 

In addition to the prison sentence, he was ordered to undergo 80 hours of sexual violence therapy program, and is banned from working with children for 10 years.
