Wow, they are having such a hard time aren't they? Poor, poor, poor prosecutors; trying so hard to push for 18 years but all you can get is 15. I was being sarcastic. They are pathetic, all of them. Japan's justice system, the judge, the lawyers, politicians, prosecutors, everybody! I bet you'd easily get 20 years if you robbed Japan's government, 'cause all they care about is money.

Japanese police take bribes from crime syndicates and turns a blind eye to their illegal establishments. So what they do with all their free time? Dig up old forsaken cases and pretend to be busy.

The Japanese law enforcers have a reputation for taking it out on innocents whenever someone important loses a lot of money, as seen in the Ghosn case. They couldn't capture Carlo Ghosn so they capture every Caucasian who's related to him instead, threw them in jail and punished them excessively.
Man, talk about incompetence. They just get so bitter, they exploit the law to their own convenience.

Japanese news outlet never uses the word "rape", only "sexual assault'. How can you not love Japan? They're so big-hearted.

This reminds me of the case a few months ago where a married couple killed an 18 year-old girl named Washino and disposed her body in a shed.
My opinion? There's no parenting anymore in this day and age. 18 and 19 are still relatively young, especially for Japanese who don't necessarily move out that early in their life. Parents are too trusting of their child, lets them hang out all day, all night with their so called friends and 'acquaintances'. And teens are too trusting of strangers, judging people only on their appearance and social skills which they can easily fake. Tragic, but this kind of incident will only repeat itself a handful of times per year because they're doing nothing to stop it.

Let's see, knowing how lenient the Japanese law is except when it comes to money matters... A person usually gets 10 to 15 years for homicide except when it's a family member, relative or friend. So in this case the sentence will be divided between 3 culprits, that's 5 years each. Of course that doesn't mean 15 people committing homicide will get 1 year each, that's not how it works even in Japan and I know that.

Also Judge: "9 years will do."

When the husband was 28, the wife was a newborn. Obviously this has been the plan all along.
