The Tokyo District Court Tuesday 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.

According to the ruling, Kensuke Matsumi, 22, a student at one of the nation's top universities, conspired with four other men from the school in May to forcibly intoxicate the female student in order to sexually assault her. Matsumi and two others were indicted over the incident.

In April, Matsumi, along with others from the school, formed a social club that translates into English as The University of Tokyo Birthday Research Group, with the goal of intoxicating and molesting women.
