Jo Joo-bin, the operator of the telegram'Park Sabang' who created and distributed sexual exploitation of minors, was sentenced to 40 years in prison at the first trial.

The judge said that the doctoral room was a criminal organization and emphasized the need to quarantine Jo Joo-bin from society for a long time.

so-called'Park Sabang' sold and distributed sexual exploitation video filmed by threatening women including minors.

The Seoul Central District Court sentenced Jo Ju-bin, who is a doctoral room operator, who was accused of violating the Child and Youth Protection Act and organizing criminal organizations, to 40 years in prison and 30 years in electronic anklet.

The judiciary said that Mr. Jo produced sexual exploits by inducing and threatening many victims in various ways, and disseminating them, revealing the victims' personal information, causing irreparable damage.

The judiciary specifically admitted that the doctoral room organization was a criminal group composed solely for crime.

In addition, charges of fraud against JTBC President Son Seok-hee were also convicted.

Mr. Cho was also handed over to trial on charges of receiving 18 million won from President Son by tricking him to give information about the case last year, and receiving 30 million won from former Gwangju Mayor Yoon Jang-hyun for recovering fraud damages.

Medium sentences were also sentenced to accomplices.

Former Geoje City Office official, Mr. Chun, was imprisoned for 15 years, former social service worker was imprisoned for 13 years, and paid members Lim and Jang-mo were imprisoned for 8 and 7 years, respectively, and the so-called'Pacific' I was sentenced to 10 years in the long term and 5 years in the short term.

The ruling, acknowledging the charges, is likely to lead to a medium sentence in similar cases.
