Goo Hara‘s ex boyfriend, Choi Jong-Beom, was sentenced to 1 year in prison.
The Supreme Court sentenced Choi Jong-Beom to one year in prison for assaulting and threatening the late Goo Hara. The Supreme Court also found him not guilty of illegal filming, saying that the evidence was insufficient.
Earlier, the first trial court acknowledged most of the charges, including Choi Jong-Beom’s threats and coercion, and sentenced him to one year in prison and three years of probation, but acquitted Choi Jong-Beom of secretly filming Goo Hara’s intimate moments. The court accepted Choi Jong-Beom’s claim that the filming was made with tacit consent.
Both Choi and the prosecution appealed, but the second trial court sentenced Choi Jong-Beom to one year in prison.
