On March 9, 2021, Kim Himchan, formerly of K-Pop group B.A.P, opted to file an appeal following his sexual assault sentencing this past February, Insight revealed.
Kim, 30, was sentenced to 10 months in prison and 40 hours of sexual violence treatment at the conclusion of the initial sexual assault case’s trial. At the conclusion of the trial February 24, the Seoul Central District Court ruled that the female accuser’s evidence and witness statements were credible enough for conviction.
According to Insight, Kim’s lawyer’s filed appeal papers a day after the sentencing was handed down. Following Kim’s appeal, the prosecutor also filed an appeal. Currently, it is unknown when the appeals will be reviewed by the courts.
Following the conclusion of the initial case, Kim was not immediately sent to prison as the court allowed him to seek forgiveness from the victim.
“While the defendant is being sentenced to prison today,” Judge Jung Sung-hwan said, “the court is not placing him in detention so that he is given a chance to seek forgiveness from the victim.”
In addition to the sexual harassment charges, Kim still has a pending case for drunk driving stemming from an October 2020 incident. Stay tuned for updates as the legal matters continue.
