Repost: Jung Joon Young and Choi Jong Hoon Receive Reduced Sentences Following Appeal

Jung Joon Young and Choi Jong Hoon have had their sentences reduced following an appeal.

In November 2019, Jung Joon Young, Choi Jong Hoon, and three other individuals were charged with aggravated rape. Choi Jong Hoon and “Kim” received five-year prison sentences and Jung Joon Young received a six-year prison sentence. “Heo” received a sentence of eight months, suspended for two years, and “Kwon” received a sentence of four years. Both the defendants and the prosecution appealed the verdict, leading to a new round of hearings starting February 2020.

On May 12, the Seoul High Court led by head judge Yoon Jong Gu gave the sentencing for the appeal trial. This was originally scheduled to take place on May 7 but was delayed after Choi Jong Hoon and Jung Joon Young’s lawyers submitted a request to delay the sentencing date. Choi Jong Hoon and “Kim” reached an agreement with the victim after court proceedings, and Jung Joon Young was in the process of reaching an agreement with another victim, with their lawyer also agreeing to the delay.

At the sentencing that took place, Choi Jong Hoon had his original sentence reduced from five years in prison to two years and six months. Jung Joon Young’s six-year sentence was reduced to five years. They will also have to undergo 80 hours of a sexual violence treatment program and will face a five-year restriction on employment at facilities related to children, adolescents, and the disabled.

The courts explained, “Jung Joon Young did not submit a written agreement with the victim. We have taken into consideration the fact that though the defendant continues to deny the charges, he is able to describe the situation at the time in great detail. But he is also sincerely reflecting on his actions.”

They went on to state, “The fact that Choi Jong Hoon reached an agreement with the victim has greatly affected his sentencing. However, he continues to deny the charges and lacks sincere self-reflection.”

“Kim” had his five-year sentence reduced to four years. The sentences of “Kwon” and “Heo” have remained the same at four years in prison and eight months in prison, suspended for two years respectively.

    They should of gotten more but at least they didnt let them off scott free like they have in the past, maybe now the delusional fans they got left will finally get a clue that their oppas are not innocent, they committed some pretty horrible crimes, that even their fancy lawers couldnt get defend them on, they really should get more time tbh. i mean gang ra** is horrifying my heart goes out to the victims its so sad any of it happened at all...😤

    Also, "HOW ABOUT SEUNGRI?!?" 😡

    1. Nasa military na si Seungri kaya military court ang magha handle ng case niya. Also wala siyang involvement sa case na to, he was not even called to be a witness here kasi wala siya sa chat group na yan. Yung kaso niya is gambling in Las Vegas and at most fine lang ang makukuha niya. Napatunayan na pong fabricated yung mga accussations na gawa ng media tungkol dun sa Burning Sun night club. Etong dalawa talaga yung may mabigat na kaso.

  3. How about Hanbin? Napakapetty ng charge sa kanya and yet mag-iisang taon na hindi pa resolved. Akala ko dito lang magulo ang justice system. Kahit sa ibang bansa din pala..

    1. Yung case ni Hanbin regarding "using" marijuana ay tapos na ata. Pero di pa sya officially closed dahil they are still investigating YHS if he really "tried" to cover up the case years ago.
      It's true though, almost 1 year na di pa din close. Not to mention na 1 case lang yun. Samantalang yung ibang mga case na nauna sakanya close na yung iba nga without indictment pa. Tsk

    1. Grabe nga yang case ni JJY. Detailed pa yung usapan nila about dun sa girls. Pati yung smell ng private parts and pagsabi nya na pinainom nya ng drugs. Ang baba ng imprisonment sa Sokor. Pag manunuod ka nung mga Kdrama na may prosecutor themes magtataka ka sa justice system nila.
