Court ends student rape trial

Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday concluded its trial of a 17-year-old accused of raping a 14-year-old girl, with Presiding Judge Kor Vandy saying a verdict would be announced later this month.

Chhun Phearon, a 12th grade student at Bak Touk high school, was arrested in October last year after having sex with the victim last March in Sen Sok district’s Bayab village in Phnom Penh, Kor Vandy said.
The victim said the sex was consensual.

“I had sex with my girlfriend at my home, and we agreed to have sex together, and I promised to marry her after I finish school,” Chhun Phearon said in court yesterday.

Kor Vandy said the court would render a verdict in the case on March 29.
