At the final trial on Nov 14th, the prosecution demanded a three-year imprisonment for Yang Hyun Suk, saying “The crime and the way he committed it were bad. Moreover, he did not acknowledge his crime throughout the period, from the police investigation to the trial process, and showed no sign of self-reflection.”
