The CEO of Open World Entertainment, who was charged earlier this year for sexually assaulting his female trainees, has been sentenced to six years in prison.
On August 10 KST, Judge Yoo Won Jae of the Seoul Central District Court officially sentenced 51-year-old Mr. Jang to 6 years in jail as well as 40 hours in a sexual assault treatment program. His file will also be available to the public for 5 years.
Prosecutors previously requested a sentence of 9 years on July 29 despite a petition filed by Jang for favorable treatment on July 12 and a written letter of apology he sent in on July 18. He applied for bail, submitting withdrawals from three out of four victims who filed complaints, agreements, and parental consent forms, but it was denied. Mr. Jang also received a court warning for making threatening phone calls to 'female A', who agreed to go through with the trial.
Jang was taken under custody this past April for sexually assaulting female trainees in his own agency from November 2010 to March 2012.
