Japan:

The Tokyo District Court ,September 2016, sentenced a University of Tokyo student and co-founder of a club whose goal it was to molest women to two years in prison, suspended for four years, for participating in a gang-style sexual assault on a female undergraduate.

Editor notes: Was the suspension for 4-years so he could finish his research?

For this amazing story and other lenient jail terms

USA:

Brock Turner and American was found guilty in March 2016 of three counts of sexual assault because he raped a 22-year-old woman behind a garbage bin after a frat party, before two students cycling past tackled him and pinned him down until police arrived and arrested him.

The punishment he received has upset a lot of people because 6-months is not harsh particularly as he probable will spend only 90 days in prison
