Autistic woman involved in Thai army group sex

May 14, 2012 at 11:50 AM

BANGKOK, May 14 (UPI) -- Thai officials Monday said a woman caught on videotape engaging in group sex with six Thai soldiers was autistic.

Investigation of the video revealed the woman in question was autistic, National Army Chief Prayuth Chan-ocha told senior officers in a meeting Monday. The Bangkok Post reported.

The incident took place three years ago and while the six soldiers have been dismissed, Prayuth said their superior will face a penalty, along with the person who shot the video. He said the six soldiers acted thoughtlessly, and also said the woman should not have given into them, the Post reported.

Prayuth said he is working to determine the unit responsible for releasing the video, and intends to impose the maximum penalty.

"The colonel will not receive his pension and the conscript trainer will be penalized for allowing the incident to take place in a military camp," Prayuth said.

The Post reported screen captures of the video have been making rounds on the Internet. The army is investigating whether or not they can prosecute whoever dispersed the pictures under the Computer Crimes Act, on grounds they tarnished the army's image in doing so.
