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."
