Seungri officially appeals 3-year prison sentence

AKP STAFF

Seungri has officially appealed his 3-year prison sentence.

Seungri was sentenced to 3 years in prison and fined 1.15 Billion KRW ($988,627.17 USD) by the General Military Court on the charges of procurement and mediation of prostitution, embezzlement of business funds, attempted destruction of evidence, distribution of illegally filmed footage, illegally filming women, illegal gambling, and violating food sanitation laws.

According to military officials on August 27, Seungri and military prosecutors delivered appeals on the 19th and 25th, respectively. Because Seungri appealed before his military discharge, he'll be discharged from the military on September 26 as scheduled. 

The appeals trial will be held at the High Military Court in the Ministry of National Defense in Seoul, but the exact date has yet to be set.

It’s literally standard procedure to appeal in those cases. Anyone would and should. I’m not a fan of his but stop making this an issue.

It's official now. I knew , Seungri and his legal team were in the process of presenting an appeal.

No one should be sentenced based on public opinion and sensational press stories.

The evidence presented in court was simply very weak. No court is going to withhold the "smoking gun". The court did not/ would not keep the strongest evidence from the public .The prosecution just didn't need to persuade the the public of Seungri's guilt, so they didn't try. The judge was biased, his ruling based on public opinion, was cowardly.

Based on lack of evidence, I expected Seungri to appeal. Appeals are based only on existing evidence already presented in court. I hope at least some of the charges are waived.
