On 15 Nov. 2022, in the juvenile court of Haidian Primary People's Court of Beijing, a defendant surnamed Wang, was given a prison sentence for the crime of child molestation and was banned for life from any occupation that had close contact with minors.

This is the first case in China concerning teaching personnel who sexually assault minors to be banned for life from jobs that have close contact with minors in accordance with the PRC Law on the Protection of Minors.

The judgment was announced just after the issue of the “Opinions on Implementing the Employment Prohibition System” (关于落实从业禁止制度的意见) issued by China's Supreme People’s Court, Supreme People's Procuratorate, and the Ministry of Education on the same day, which exactly echoed the policy in the Opinions.

In this case, the defendant surnamed Wang was hired by a school in Beijing as an extracurricular instructor. Wang took advantage of the one-on-one tutoring opportunities to touch the private part of a ten-year-old girl multiple times.
