I would assume this falls under the new Cyber Bullying / Online Abuse laws?

Which could include up to one year jail time?

From what I've seen the majority of these guys don't want "new" underwear.

They specifically want them used.

Many of them are double dipping for "thrills". The sexual gratification of having a woman's used underwear, as well as their klepto urges for the thrill of stealing... similar to the feeling of shoplifting.

The vast majority of them could easily go to any department store and buy a brand new pair of panties if they wanted to.

Do they need a man to have a life "on their own"?

In Japan, pretty much yes. Japanese women do not get anything close to equal pay. Your average "good" Job women get pays roughly less than 200,000 a month.

Rent will cost anywhere from 80,000 to 120,000. Utilities and phone another 10,000 - 20,000.

Factor in food, train fares, makeup (most jobs require makeup), and other expenses and you're literally living off only the equivalent of $200 - $300 a month.

So for most women, no its not required, but you won't be able to do much on your own.

A large part of the Japanese "legal" system is predicated on the accused's intent, and self-reflection (反省 hansei). The length of sentences in court cases can vary wildly depending on whether or not the accused expresses regret for what they did.

Can't know for sure, but from what I read this guy gives off vibes of "sorry, not sorry" in his actions. He acknowledged what he did was wrong, and it seems initially he felt remorse about it, but none of his actions really show or reflect that.

That sort of thing will have the Japanese (and many other countries) legal systems throwing the book at him for anything even remotely possible... such as 'Computer Fraud'.

The whole reported it after five stations thing is moot imp She was likely going to work if she's riding the train at 7:30 am. Likely she wasn't injured badly enough to risk being late and instead reported it at her departing or transfer station
