Seoul Court rules final sentence over S.E.S's Shoo on charges of habitual gambling + Shoo accepts full sentence


On February 28, the Seoul District Court has issued a final sentence over S.E.S's Shoo (38, Yoo Soo Young), charged and convicted of illegal, habitual overseas gambling (involving approximately $700,000 USD). 

The court declared that if Shoo becomes involved in any other criminal case over a restricted arrest period of 2 years, she shall serve 6 months of imprisonment; if she causes no further troubles during the arrest period, her imprisonment sentence will be lifted. Shoo also faces 80 hours of community service, and she has decided to accept all clauses of her sentence. 

The Seoul police, who originally sought a penal servitude sentence of 1 year, will likely accept the sentence also, and refrain from further appeals. 

Although Shoo "shed light to negative influences as a well-known celebrity through her crimes of habitual gambling and borrowing large sums of money for gambling usage", the court chose to delay her penal servitude sentence through restricted arrest on the account that "she has no previous history of illegal gambling charges, and is reflecting on her mistakes deeply."

i know that south korean law can make little to no sense at times, but why are the people in the comments so mad about a country trying to protect it’s citizens from damning gambling habits?

They’re taking preventative measures so that cases like these dont happen more often...So that the citizens don’t fall close to a million dollars into debt.

Hypocrites. Government doesn't let its citizens gamble but have casinos for tourists to gamble in. Pretty much says that they know gambling can be crippling but as long as it's not their own people they are for it.
