Moral Lesson for All

Was it too harsh on the side of the court to charge the young man with this huge amount of money? One may think this is too harsh on the side of the man but truly it is a crime to do such thing to a woman without her will. Even for The fact that, we befriend a lady does not mean is alright for a man to harass her in public by touching her backside and go freely.
