Choi Jong Hoon Receives Sentence For Attempted Bribery And Spreading Illegally-Taken Footage
Choi Jong Hoon has received his sentence for alleged bribery during a drunk driving incident back in 2016 and spreading illegally-taken footage.
On the afternoon of March 27, Seoul Central District Court announced the verdict on Choi Jong Hoon’s first trial for the charges of attempted bribery and spreading illegally-taken footage.
The court sentenced Choi Jong Hoon to one year in prison suspended for two years of probation along with 80 hours in a sexual violence rehabilitation program.
The court stated, “Choi Jong Hoon expressed his intent to offer a bribe to a public official for his personal gain, trying to damage the fairness regarding drunk driving control and trust in society.” They added, “Furthermore, on his charge of filming a woman’s nude body, offering it to other people, and distributing pornographic material, he quickly and easily spread a video that could distort a sound sexual awareness, so the societal damage is great.”
The police previously booked Choi Jong Hoon for offering 2 million won (approximately $1,778) to the officer on the scene at the time to cover up his drunk driving incident in 2016. He was also charged with sharing illegally filmed footage.
