What the fuck Taiwan? A woman from Changhua county has been sentenced to 298 years in prison for sleeping with her neighbour, Want China Times reports.
The 56 year-old woman, who reportedly owns a restaurant specializing in snake meat, was found to be having an affair with the 50 year-old man, surnamed Chang, between 2006 and 2011. The pair would hold trysts at a hotel several times a week, 894 times in total, according to the court.
No seriously, what the fuck Taiwan?
Chang’s wife filed charges against the woman for having an affair with her husband. The court sentenced the woman to 3,576 months in prison, four months for every time the couple had sex.
The woman’s sentence has been suspended for two years (after which it may be thrown out), but should she break the terms of her parole she could be imprisoned.
Chang was not sentenced to any time in prison for his part in the affair and his wife has reportedly forgiven him for cheating on her (894 times).
Taiwan’s archaic and batshit insane adultery law has wide popular support on the island. A proposed reform would only commute sentences to “no more than a year” in prison.
