How this assailant got only a slap on the wrist, because his victim failed to take his own injuries seriously enough, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
The man, Lai suspected that Yao was doing something bad to his own daughter back in 2016, went to Yao’s home to confront him, and beaten him up, as Yao’s parents tried to prevent their son from being beaten, Yao’s father suspected a head trauma, after the surgeries, he’d become paralyzed, and died eight months later; the first trial found Lai guilty of assault, sentenced him to six years, the second trial gave him two four years six months; the Taichung High Subsidiary Courts retrial believed, that the victim didn’t get treated in time at the recommendation of medical professionals, that he was partially responsible, tossed back the original verdict, sentenced Yao to four years. This can still be appealed.
The verdict pointed out, that Lai suspected that Yao had done something bad to his own daughter, on the afternoon of February 12th, 2016, he’d gone to Yao’s residence in Changwha to confront him, back then, Yao and both his parents were at home, in a moment of anger, Lai tried to beat Yao, and both the parents saw and tried to block him off.
Lai started taking his anger out on Yao’s parents, injured both, causing both to sustain multiple injuries, Yao’s father started bleeding internally on the right side of his skull, severely injured, on the fifteenth he received a surgery and still ended up a quadriplegic, could take care of himself in daily living.
Yao’s father died on October 16th, 2016, the D.A. believed that Lai had injured him severely, and indicted him; the Changwha District Court found Lai guilty of assault causing severe injuries, sentenced him to six years, the second trial, the Taichung High Subsidiary court sentenced him to four years six months.
The first retrials in the Collectivist Court believed, that on the day of the attack, Yao’s father went to the E.R. to get treated, but didn’t follow the suggestions of the medical professionals to get a CT scan, along with other tests, that three days later, he’d had subdural hematoma, and went to the emergency room for the surgeries, the severity of the results of his injuries were on him, for delaying treatment.
The originally verdict didn’t take this into consideration, which is why the retrial tossed the verdict, and gave a lesser sentence.
And so, this still just showed, that if you were injured in a confrontation, it’s YOUR own responsibilities to either take the advice of the medical professionals to hospitalize or whatever, otherwise, the individual who’d caused you the serious injuries, or even death will only get a slap on the wrist, because you are the ones, failing to pay close attention to your own body.
