Choi Jong Hoon has been indicted on charges of sexual assault while in detention.

It was announced on June 4 that the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office indicted him on June 3 based on the Act on Special Cases Concerning the Punishment, etc. of Sexual Crimes.

Last week, Choi Jong Hoon submitted a habeas corpus petition, but it was rejected by the Seoul Central District Court.

Original Article:

Choi Jong Hoon’s habeas corpus petition has been rejected.

According to the courts on May 31, the Seoul Central District Court held a hearing on Choi Jong Hoon’s habeas corpus petition on May 29 and judge Lee Il Yeom has rejected it. The habeas corpus petition is a system in which an incarcerated individual can file a petition objecting to their detainment and asking the courts to review their case.

By rejecting Choi Jong Hoon’s petition, the courts have reconfirmed that the pretrial detention warrant against him is still valid. On May 9, the warrant, which allows for a suspect to be detained for longer than 48 hours, was issued for Choi Jong Hoon as he faces charges of multiple-perpetrator sexual assault. According to the judge, “The court recognizes the criminal charges, and there are clear concerns of tampering of evidence.”

Choi Jong Hoon is currently facing charges of sexual assault on two cases, once in January 2016 in Hongcheon, Gangwon Province and once in March 2016 in Daegu, along with Jung Joon Young and others.

Two rapes that we know of in a three month time period. He’s probably a serial rapist. I hope they lock him up for a long time and take all his money.

I want to be agog at the temerity to try for habeaus corpus, but Korea doesn't really have pre-trial detention so maybe it's more commonly used there.

Still, motions practice continues. Looking forward to the trial and punishment!

He should stay in jail.

Why is Seungri again not detained?

Good. Can Seungri, JJY, and the inferior Jongjhyun be jailed too?

Wasnt he first charged with taking/sharing pic/vid without consent? And he turns out to be a rapist? Disgusting. Makes you wonder about the rest of these guys

Good. Meanwhile FTI have been doing successful concerts without him and don't batter an eyelid about his absence. Literally no one misses him except for those usual deluded group of fans.

If Seungri is the ring leader clearly he's got friends in high places. I need him, whoever is helping him, the rest of the celeb ring and co. Yoochun, and Hyunjoong to get locked up asap

electric chair, etc. it would be nice if he was thrown in jail at least. but where's jjy? that cnblue guy who somehow wasn't even dropped by fnc?
i keep hoping that the fact that he seems to be the one taking all heat (instead of all criminals who are involved in this one big case) leads to him opening his mouth wide open. him dragging everyone else with him to the same jail cell is my last hope.

what's wild is that i have a distinct memory of hongki poking at jong hoon for becoming "less fun" since "going holy" but he still turned out to be a serial rapist.

i would wonder about the other members if it weren't for the fact that jong hoon is CLEARLY not close with them, at least from what i saw of their reality show. he's the one member that everyone else seemed uncomfortable around the most except for hongki who just didnt seem to gaf about anything in general.

it's incredibly shameful that out of all the people accused, only two are facing any serious charges.
