Former B.A.P Member Himchan was sentenced to 10 months in prison.
On February 24, the Seoul Central District Court has sentenced former BAP member Himchan to 10 months in prison and 40 hours sexual violence treatment program.
“According to the evidence investigated, the victim’s statements are fully credible and support the indictment,” Chief Judge Chung said. “For this reason, we acknowledge the charges against the defendant and judge him guilty.”
However, the court did not arrest Himchan to give him the chance to apologize to the victim. “We will sentence the defendant to prison today, but we will not arrest him in court to allow him to try to be forgiven by the victim.”
Previously, Himchan sexually assaulted a woman in her 20s at a pension in Namyangju, Gyeonggi Province, in the early morning of July 24, 2018.
