The judge said, “The defendants committed crimes at overseas gambling houses over a long period of 4 years, and the gambling fund was also a huge sum of over 400 million won,” said the judge. “Because the gambling act is not only a departure from individuals, it is severely impeding social consciousness and good manners. They need to be punished. In addition, the accused’s actions had a negative effect on the general public and adolescents.
