BREAKING
Seungri officially sentenced to 3 years in prison for mediating prostitution

AKP STAFF

Seungri has been officially sentenced to 3 years in prison.

According to SBS News on August 12, the former Big Bang member was sentenced to 3 years in prison by the General Military Court and has been officially taken into legal custody on the charges of mediating prostitution and illegal gambling. He's also been ordered to pay 1.15 billion Won ($988,627.17 USD) in fines. Seungri previously faced up to 5 years in prison for the prostitution charges.

The court ruled that he "repeatedly arranged prostitution for foreign investors and benefited from it. The crimes committed by the accused, who commercialized sex and violated customs, are not small in social harm." 

Since the 'Burning Sun' scandal in 2019, Seungri has been undergoing investigation and trial for 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. 

Stay tuned for updates.
