Russian Rafael Sadykov tries to explain to police that it’s ok because the 14-year-old girl had agreed to go with him for 500 baht. Police, of course, disagree.
A 51-year-old Russian man caught in bed with a 14-year-old girl claimed he didn’t realize he’d done anything wrong, as the girl had agreed to go with him for 500 baht.
Human trafficking division police arrested Rafael Sadykov at his Rimhad Condominium room Oct. 29. Pretending to be from a food-delivery service, police pushed past Sadykov as he opened the door, clad only in a towel, to find the 14-year-old in his bed. She told officers they’d already had sex once and we’re starting again when officers arrived.
Sadykov, charged with statutory rape of a minor, denied the charges, saying the girl had agreed to have sex with him a half-dozen times previously. Each time, he admitted, he’d paid her 500 baht as agreed and said he did not understand what the problem was.
The Russian will have plenty of time to ponder his misdeeds as he awaits trial.
