(Scroll down for video) A teacher walked free from the courtroom after having sex with an underage female student.

The judge saw romantic text messages between the two, which indicated that she wanted and enjoyed the relationship.

The 40-year-old teacher, who was identified as Yen, is a married man and a military instructor. He also works at a high school in Taoyuan, Taiwan.

According to investigators, Yen seduced the 17-year-old student.

He repeatedly took the girl to a hotel room where they had sex.

The teacher was arrested after the girl’s father found love letters written by Yen to his daughter. He wanted Yen to be charged with rape, but the Supreme Court ruled that Yen is not guilty.

The teacher was acquitted by the Supreme Court after the judge saw about 10,000 intimate texts messages exchanged between the student and teacher.

The judge ruled that the two lovebirds were “truly in love” therefore it was not rape.
