Jung Joon Young and Choi Jong Hoon were sentenced to jail a while back on charges such as participating in gang rape, but they predictably appealed their sentences. Now they have the final result, and their appeals somehow sorta worked as their punishments were reduced.
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.
It’s confusing that people act like those who don’t trust the justice system are insane or something when one can do everything somebody like Jung Joon Young has done, from documenting gang rape and mocking victims to fucking with the actual justice system itself, and still only get five years thanks to an appeal.
But no matter how many times the absurdities are pointed out, stans will fall back on legality being morality or whatever cause they don’t care about anything except whether the celeb can go back to making them clap like a seal.
