The prosecution has stepped forward to demand harsher punishments for those who had blackmailed JYJ member Yoochun, asking for two years of jail time for one person, one year and six months for the second, and three years and six months for the third who has a repeated offense record. On December 22nd at the Seoul Central District Court, the prosecution made their final demands for sentencing the three individuals after a non-public interrogation of the defendants.
The entire process took approximately two hours and thirty minutes, and the prosecution commented, ‘The boyfriend of the individual who initially falsely accused Yoochun of rape should receive 1 year and 6 months since he was involved after believing his girlfriend's testimony.’ The defendants asked the judges for lighter sentencing, while discussing the incident by speaking their regrets.
Yoochun was released from sexual assault charges in July of this year, and currently is working to make legal charges against those who had falsely accused him. The final sentencing will be handed down on January 17th.
