Prosecution asked for harsh sentences for the individuals who blackmailed Yoochun of JYJ -- 2 years for one person, 1 year and 6 months for another person, and 3 years and 6 months for a person who has a repeated offense record.
On December 22 at Seoul Central District Court, prosecution made their final demands for sentencing for the three individuals after an non-public questioning of the defendants. The process took about 2 hours and 30 minutes.

The prosecution stated, "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." However, for the third individual, the prosecution demanded 3 years and 6 months since he has other criminal records. The defendants asked the judge for lighter sentencing while describing the details of the incident and expressing their regrets.
Yoochun has been free from sexual assault charges back in July and is in the process of seeking legal reprimands against those who falsely accused him of rape.
The final sentencing will officially be handed down on January 17 by the court.
