Former Sechs Kies member Kang Sung Hoon has been put under court custody following a jail sentence handed down to him in his fraud case.

Kang Sung Hoon is Given a Jail Sentence

The justice department stated in the final trial held on February 13, "We find the defendant guilty. We sentence him to two years and six months in jail. As his sentence is a jail sentence, we cancel his bail and order him to be imprisoned."

Justice Kang Young Hoon added, "We did offer an extenuation as he confessed on the charges filed by victims Mr. Park and Mr. Oh, and he did work hard to cover some faults, but we were led to find him guilty in the end. That he barely recovered the harm done to another victim, Mr. Hwang, put him at a disadvantage."

"We did take into consideration that he had attempted to hold a concert in Japan, but we sentence him to two years and six months in jail after finding him guilty," he finished.

In the trial held on January 23, the same justice had pushed back the final trial to February, as he found that Kang Sung Hoon is working hard to reach an agreement with Mr. Oh.

Mr. Oh at the time had showed frustration at the postponement, saying, "My family is suffering from the problems surrounding our car and the financial issues. I hope they are solved as quickly as possible."

Mr. Oh sued Kang Sung Hoon, asserting that Kang Sung Hoon did not pay back the money he was lent.

Kang Sung Hoon was sued by three people, including a Mr. Hwang, from 2009 to January 2012 for swindling a total of about 900 million won. He was released from imprisonment on September 2012 after he showed a willingness to pay back his debt.

Following his release, Kang Sung Hoon held a press conference and sued a loan shark Mr. Ko and a businessman Mr. Kang in December 2012, saying he "didn′t mean to swindle" the money and that he "was put under harm instead while trying to pay it back."

Prosecution had demanded a four year sentence at the trial held on January 9.
