The Seoul Central District Court has sentenced K-Pop stars Jung Joon- Young and Choi Jong-hoon to serve six and five years in prison respectively. cho
Reportedly, the K-pop stars gang raped unconscious drunk women. Jung is also charged for filming and spreading the footage via online chat groups.
According to BBC, the two will be doing 80 hours of sexual violence treatment courses and will be banned from working with children from then on.
30 year old Jung had apparently victimized women who were “drunk and unable to resist, filmed them nude and having sex then spread it on a group chat.”
That was the statement that Judge Kang Seong-soo said during the sentencing hearing held on Friday.
“We can’t imagine the pain the victims might have felt who found out later,” the judge added.
“I deeply regret my foolishness and I feel great remorse,” Jung Joon- Young said.
“From now on, I shall only give out and live in remorse,” the K-Pop star continued.
Reportedly, Jung left the entertainment business in March after admitting to his crimes. He was a former member of the boy group F.T. Island.
“I filmed women without their consent and shared it in a chatroom, and while I was doing so I didn’t feel a great sense of guilt,” Jung Joon- Young added. “Throughout the rest of my life, I will repent on my immoral and illegal acts that constitute crimes.”
