Iron's lawyers said they are planning on appealing his sentence if it is too one-sided

Iron had another hearing on his violent assault to an ex-girlfriend on the 27th, where interrogation continued. He maintained his stance that he had neither hit nor threatened his ex-girlfriend because she wanted to break up with him, denied hurting himself and threatening her, and also maintained that he only hit her when requested during sex, and had not assaulted her. As Iron and his ex-girlfriend cannot come to an agreement, and Iron was not pleading guilty, the prosecutors are seeking a sentence of 1 year in prison if he is found guilty.

His lawyers said, "We cannot agree to the charges on threatening and self-injury. There is definitely a difference in reading what actually happened. We are looking into documenting wrong testimonies, and we are also considering appealing based on the sentence."

The final hearing will take place at 10AM KST on July 20th.

Awww, man... I guess I can't like you anymore either. Your single was so good and I loved you on Jjong's , but I don't support men who hit women. Can't do it. Sad day...

lol, they already know they've lost.

allkpopellie Sunday, July 2, 2017

I can't remember the pictures of the girl, did she have any bruises? and do porno stars get bruises when they film those scenes? This could help to understand what really went on.

Nutelladela allkpopellie Sunday, July 2, 2017

I'd like to know as well!

So the prosecution wants a year. If he says he didn't do it then his lawyers need to keep fighting.

_Jarhon Sunday, July 2, 2017

FUCK. Like 3284798 ppl saying "we'll never know" wtf kinda delusional kiddie world do people live in? The ONLY reason we have a legal system and courts IS to find out the truth. To investigate, to prove, to demonstrate to come to a conclusion about the TRUTH of the matter. You guys crying we'll never know, even before the goddamn court case has begun, based on you reading tabloids.... fucking internet generation......... We WILL find out the truth the moment the judge hands down the verdict. He will be either guilty or innocent. ... And before someone nitpicks, vast majority of court cases actually hold up in higher courts, its mainly in TV dramas where innocent people are wrongly convicted or guilty people get away scot-free.They only overturn convictions if new concrete evidence turns up.

Crazy_Dog _Jarhon Sunday, July 2, 2017

tbh u never know unless u were there. there only so much the system can do when it comes to situations like this. to me this has become a he said she said game. and there not much u can do in that scenrio imo

_Jarhon Crazy_Dog Sunday, July 2, 2017

ITS NOT A FUCKING OPINION. This is a COURT OF LAW. It doesn't rely on tabloid rumors. There will be witnesses, character testimonies, digital evidence. Like jeesus... nobodys OPINION is gonna matter jack shit in a court of law. Not Iron's and not the GF's. That's NOT how this works. Which was the entire point of the rant.

freysan _Jarhon Sunday, July 2, 2017

ah, sweet summer child. you really think trials and investigations are perfect? how many mistrials have happened in the world? unless there's an actual footage of the scene, testimonies and words alone can never fully tell the truth. I'm not discrediting the investigation for Iron but don't go around calling out users who say we'll never know the truth because they have a point.

Crazy_Dog _Jarhon Sunday, July 2, 2017

ur an idiot tbh. unless the judge himself was there u cant go forward with a he said she said case. unless u automatically think one is super guilty based on first reports

fantasticlau _Jarhon Sunday, July 2, 2017

Why are you so aggressive mate? No one can take you seriously with that attitude.

intricate _Jarhon Sunday, July 2, 2017

this case completely consists of statements. No conclusive evidence whatsoever. So unless one person goes "yeah... i did it, i lied" or whatever, this case will not come to a definite close.

galaxyifan _Jarhon Sunday, July 2, 2017

First of all, chill. Second of all, we will never know that's FOR SURE, why? Because we weren't there and the investigation etc... cannot be perfect, and it happened multiple times that victims got switched. So we will never know for sure who is right, who is worng, and what truly happened between them because we weren't there that's a fact not an opinion or us being delusional. Heck, have you seen how many victims turned out to b fake victims only years after the investigation was closed? Or how many criminals didn't get the punishment they deserved, even after investigation, because they were able to make themselves seem innocent? That's why everyone should stop acting like they know it all and shut up.

crystalCassie91 _Jarhon Sunday, July 2, 2017

lol... you must be some law student or something... You hold the law so high and mighty as if it's the law of god.. No, it isn't, it's the law of mankind.. so imperfect, with too many contradictions and holes.. I even personally know of a person who has spent 4 years in prison and is still stuck there and he's completely innocent.. Some Jordanian thug borrowed this guy's car, he committed a crime with it, then gave it back and the Jordanian ran away.. Now the car owner is in prison at the border in Saudi Arabia, and may be executed.. not for murder, not for anything grand like that.. but just because in SA they like to empty their prisons every once in a while... so random prisoners get executed just like that... There are just too many people who go to jail while innocent.. so don't make a fuss about how the court will come out with the truth.. Because it almost never does.. the court room is just a place where clever Lawyers and prosecutors find a way to play around the law, they can make a man innocent when he is clearly guilty, and they can make a man guilty when he is clearly innocent.. And even when the whole court room knows the truth, they have to abide by the law with its loop holes and play along with the lawyers and prosecutors..

intricate galaxyifan Sunday, July 2, 2017

you can dissect the truth if you have useful evidence though. But as far as I know, in this case, there is nothing of the sort. No video, no audio recordings, or particularly damning text message exchanges, nothing. If we had those then we could've found out the truth even if we weren't there, but at this point we only have allegations and testimonies.

intricate crystalCassie91 Sunday, July 2, 2017

if he was a law student he wouldn't make such a stupid claim which goes along the lines of "the proceedings will reveal the truth". The first thing you learn as a law student is that those who have a greater knowledge of the system of justice usually win. At least in stalemate cases such as this.

jeyjin Sunday, July 2, 2017

How does a masochist prove that they didn't want to get hit or that the person was hitting them harder then they liked? Maybe if she has some form of documentation like text messages but i don't think Iron and his lawyer would be so confident if they felt like she had solid proof that she was being hit without consent.

allkpopellie jeyjin Sunday, July 2, 2017

That's why I asked the question, do porno stars get bruises when they do that? This would really help. Did the lady got any bruises? Both sides better work hard.

L_catzzz Saturday, July 1, 2017

Why u said u cannot agree on the charges when it says it is only if he is found guilty? If you're not guilty, it doesn't matter what the sentence are right? So why the need to appeal?

holdthisLnoobs L_catzzz Sunday, July 2, 2017

love u lcatz, wish I could give u a million likes in return also but I'm too lazy so forgive me #freeiron

L_catzzz holdthisLnoobs Sunday, July 2, 2017

Love u too ❤ ;)

intricate L_catzzz Sunday, July 2, 2017

They do not agree to the charges so they will appeal if the judge somehow convicts Iron. If the judge deems Iron innocent as is the defense's position there will be no need to appeal. The wording in the article is rather weird for a stance that is actually very normal in matters such as this. Note that the charges are what the prosecution comes up with, not the judge, he or she only determines whether the charges are warranted.

L_catzzz intricate Sunday, July 2, 2017

Ah I see. That's explains it. Akp article seems confusing to me. The first sentence said "if it is too one sided". I seriously don't get what that supposed to mean here. Thanks for the info btw.

intricate L_catzzz Sunday, July 2, 2017

yeah it is confusing. They spend too many words trying to say something like "the allegations are BS, if he miraculously gets convicted we will definitely appeal. Because a conviction would be utter madness." That's how it reads to me. Basically they do not agree with the charges, but it seems like if there would be different charges they're willing to go with the flow... something like that.

mind_blown Saturday, July 1, 2017

Basically we'll never know the truth. Welp... So on another note Happy Canada Day to all my fellow canadians ✌🏽🇨🇦

_Jarhon mind_blown Sunday, July 2, 2017

what?!?!?! The entire point of court proceedings IS to find the truth. Like wtf. If he is foudn guilty, then he was guilty. If he is found innocent, then he was innocent.

fantasticlau _Jarhon Sunday, July 2, 2017

It doesn't work that easily dude. An innocent people can easily be found guilty and vice versa. Everything's in the past so unless there's a video footage or some of them admits he/she lied we indeed will never know the truth.

intricate _Jarhon Sunday, July 2, 2017

The court will try to look for the truth, that is indeed the point of these proceedings, but I doubt they will find it in this case. I would also like to add that, if a person is deemed innocent it's not because he is in fact innocent, it's because the prosecution didn't provide enough evidence to prove his guilt. "Proving innocence" is the opposite of what the justice system in most countries (including SK) is after, you can only prove guilt. At least, that's how it's supposed to work. There are many examples where prejudice causes the defense to resort to proving innocence instead as they can be deemed guilty by default.

freysan Saturday, July 1, 2017

he's not pleading guilty.. either he's being stubborn or he's confident that he's innocent.. (._.)

pink_oracle freysan Sunday, July 2, 2017

If you visit any prison and ask the inmates what they're in for the majority of them will say, "I didn't do it."

allkpopellie pink_oracle Sunday, July 2, 2017

lol, do they? seriously lol

pink_oracle allkpopellie Sunday, July 2, 2017

Yep, criminals tend to lack shame and any sense of personal accountability. Even after being convicted and locked up they are still hardwired to deny any wrong doing or take responsibility. Typically they will try to play the victim.

allkpopellie pink_oracle Sunday, July 2, 2017

:( they are like psychopaths and sociopaths ... interesting ...

crystalCassie91 freysan Sunday, July 2, 2017

lol... you are basically saying: either he is innocent or he is guilty.. nothing new there...

pink_oracle allkpopellie Sunday, July 2, 2017

Or have the intellectual maturity of children.

galaxyifan Saturday, July 1, 2017

Looks like we'll never know who's right or wrong... That's why I don't like it when they report things like that, people hear only what they like to hear but they always forget that we weren't there so we will never know... I just hope whoever is at fault here gets the punishment they deserve.
