Colombia man 'jailed over grope'
A judge's ruling - criticised by some as being too harsh - ruled the courier had committed an abusive sexual act.
Diana Marcela Diaz told RCN that the courier had cycled off after groping her, but had been caught by passers-by.
When he was arrested, she was given the option of slapping him, letting him go, or filing a complaint.
She had chosen to set a precedent that would stop sexist behaviour, she said.
RCN described the sentence as historic, but some lawyers condemned it as excessive.
A female member of the national ombudsman's office said the courier had only acted out of lust.
"He didn't use violence or commit a sexual act," she was quoted as saying. Link
This is acceptable conduct in many cultures.
