A 40-year-old man accused by a 17-year-old French girl of using his position of power and influence to entice her into a sex act, had charges against him dropped after prosecutors decided the relationship was probably consensual.
Local media reports say that a hearing was held by Hsinchu District Prosecutors yesterday, April 8. It appears from the reports that the alleged victim was not present at the hearing, and that evidence was presented from statements made to police, and the subsequent police investigation.
According to the police investigation, the 17 year old high school student, with “fair skin, and a nice figure,” came to Taiwan last year as an exchange student with the Rotary Youth Exchange program.
According to the student’s statements, Mr Zhao (趙), president of the Hsinchu chapter of Rotary Club International at the time, invited the 17-year-old high school student to lunch November 30, 2018. [FULL STORY]
