The private is a lowlife. Kevin Lee Flippin deserves every minute of the ten year sentence in a Korean prison that he got after the brutal Sept. 24 rape of a 17 year-old girl.
The GI, high on vodka and whiskey, broke into the apartment of the victim, located just outside the U.S. Army base at Camp Casey.
The early-morning assault lasted four long hours, in which the soused soldier repeatedly raped the girl, stopping only to beat her about the head and burn her breast with the flame from a cigarette lighter.
He even stole her wallet containing 5000 won - about four dollars in U.S. currency.
U.S.-KOREAN RELATIONS DAMAGED
Judge Park In-Sik denounced Flippin for the "sadistic" attack. He called the incident "an atrocious act."
The convicted 21 year-old creep is a member of the 6th Bn., 2nd Infantry Div.
Already fragile relations between the U.S. and South Korea were further strained by the vicious rape. It put the U.S.-South Korean Status of Forces Agreement at risk.
This is the worst such act since 1992, when an American soldier was sentenced to 15 years after raping and killing a female sex worker.
