In addition to Jung Joon Young’s sex scandal in 2016 with his ex-girlfriend, it has been reported that he was accused of filming illegal cams last year as well.
According to March 13th’s broadcast of SBS’s News Briefing, Jung Joon Young was accused of the illegal filming last year but acquitted after the prosecution dismissed the search warrant claiming that there were “no circumstances of him trying to circulate it.”
This comes after he was accused of taking a naked photo of a woman (his ex-girlfriend) in 2016. The police failed to find the video on his phone, which eventually led to his acquittal.
On March 12, Jung Joon Young was charged for filming and circulating hidden sex cams of 10 women within the period of 10 months in 2015. As a result, he will be reporting to the police on March 14 as a suspect.
On the morning of March 13, the Investigation Team of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency sent investigators to a private data restoration business located in Seocho-gu, Seoul and are currently securing the communications records.
Professor Lee Soo Jung stated her doubts about why the police are conducting the search and confiscation now and not 3 years ago. Moreover, she suggested that Jung Joon Young may have purposely been given time to eliminate evidence or try to reach out to the victims.
I don’t know why they are conducting the search and confiscation now and not 3 years ago. I thought that he would be arrested as soon as he arrived at the airport but they gave him a day. It’s obvious. I don’t see why they are giving him a defense right so that he can eliminate the evidence or attempt a negotiation with the victims. In 2016, he was acquitted without a proper investigation due to the fact that he did not have his cell phone. Because there was no evidence, the crime could not be proved and it was put to an end but it’s basic common sense to secure the phone. I wonder why they didn’t do so.
