When will he be realeased from jail? He has a great voice...i wish he will get realeased soon and continue being a utaite...
Wow! I didn't know about this until you posted about it here! That's a shame. I'm a little disappointed in him, but then again she was only one year from being legal, and its not like it wasn't consensual. But anyways. I wonder how long this kind of sentence lasts in Japan? Someone could look it up, it's probably on wikipedia. But honestly, we should be worried whether or not he'll continue utaite activities at ALL. Since this was in the media and everything, everyone now knows that this happened. He's probably thoroughly embarrassed. Hopefully he continues as an utaite when he's released. Honestly, if I were involved in a very public scandal, I'm not sure I would have the guts to return.
Well, I was mistaken a bit. Legal age of an adult is apparently 20 in Japan, though I didn't stop to think that the age might be different from my country. I couldn't find specifics on Japanese law regarding the issue though. If it was a case of both prostitution AND someone underage, both of those together might get him a longer sentence. But from what I've seen while researching, times can vary greatly. If it were someone under the age of 13, the punishment could be between 6 months and 7 years. So unless there are specifics on the case, it might be hard to narrow down how long a sentence might be, since it seems as though depending on the case, Japanese sentencing varies. Hm. I'll see if I can find any more info on the case, though I sort of doubt it. All we can do it wait and hope, I suppose.
Yeah, sorry about the blabbing but, I couldn't find any more information. Anyways, I'm just glad this didn't happen to one of my favourite utaite... but Panyo does have a nice voice, it's a shame it happened at all. I've kinda lost my respect for him though, especially after looking into it a bit more.
Points at this
OH! Thank you Jun *faceplants*
