Former B.A.P member Himchan was sentenced to 10 months in prison for sexual assault.
On February 24th, the district court in Seoul sentenced him to 10 months in prison and ordered him to take 40 hours of a treatment program for sex offenders. But the court did not sentence a restraining order for him to have time to apologize to the victim.
Himchan was indicted back in July 2018 for assaulting a female. After an outing with 3 males and 3 females at a pension in Gyeonggi province, one of the females called the police and accused Himchan of sexual assault. Although Himchan claimed that "there were mutual feelings", the police determined that the charge against Himchan was valid and forwarded it to the court.
Previously in October of last year, he made a comeback with "Reason of My Life" but within 3 days after the release, he halted all promotions with another controversy due to his DUI charges.
