Former member of the South Korean pop group BIGBANG Sinry’s sentence was reduced by 1 year and 6 months. Sinry currently has nine charges, including violating the Aggravating Punishments Act, etc. on specific economic crimes, violation of the Law on Food Sanitation, embezzlement, violation of the Law on Special Cases Concerning Punishment, etc., sexual crimes, ordinary gambling, violation of the Law on Foreign Exchange Operations, mediation in prostitution, purchase of prostitution services and incitement to special violence.
On January 27, according to the Korean newspaper Soompi, the Supreme Court of the Armed Forces held an appeal court in Shinri. On appeal, the Ministry of Justice sentenced Sinry to one year and six months in prison, a reduced sentence from his first sentence of three years in prison and a fine of 1,156,900,000 won (about $ 994,544).
Earlier, Synry and the military prosecutor’s office appealed his initial sentence. The reduced sentence seems to follow a change in Sinra’s position. In the original trial, Sinri dismissed eight of the nine charges, except for violating the Foreign Exchange Transactions Act, but he admitted all his charges on appeal and expressed his remorse.
After the first trial last year, Sinry is now behind bars after being arrested by a court. Both Synry and the military prosecutor’s office have not appealed to the Supreme Court, so if the appeal sentence is completed, Synry will be released after serving another year and one month in prison. The third trial will be conducted by the Supreme Court of Korea.
