Former politician Super Crazy-kun gets 4 1/2 years for sexual assault


The Miyazaki District Court on Friday sentenced a former politician to 4 1/2 years in prison for sexually assaulting a woman at a hotel last year.

Prosecutors had sought seven years for Super Crazy-kun, 37, whose real name is Makoto Nishimoto, Sankei Shimbun reported.

According to the ruling, Super Crazy-kun, who pleaded guilty on the first day of the trial on May 16, took a female acquaintance to a hotel in Miyazaki City on Sept 3 last year and sexually assaulted her. The woman suffered an injury to her left hand.

Super Crazy-kun was elected in April last year to the Miyazaki City Council election. He resigned in February this year.

Wow, a politician actually sentenced to a prison. That is rare. What party did he belong to? I am guessing it was not the DP as he is being punished.

Looks like the he lived up to his name.

I mean, how serious does he want people to take him with a name like that in politics?

Good to see he got some jail time.

No suspended sentence I hope!

If memory serves, only those with a sentence under 3years can have it suspended, so he will be spending time in prison.

Will he be added on the sexual predator list?

In an interview with the Tokyo Shimbun in 2021, Nishimoto said he ran in the race to “increase my popularity.” It was also reported that Nishimoto’s father was a member of an organized crime group, and that his mother left the family when he was 1 year old. He then became a member of a gang when he was in junior high, and was sent to a juvenile detention center three times.

I think he only got the jail time in the end because of the name he chose. Obviously didn't follow the norms of the dudes who always get suspended sentences.

Sounds like a bad egg from a family full of wickedness and darkness. A longer sentence would have been preferable, testi removal and lifelong tagging
