He was indicted in June 2013 for attempted interference in the 2012 South Korean presidential election by allegedly ordering an online misinformation campaign against opposition candidates.[1] On January 22, 2014 he was found guilty for graft. He got a 2-year jail term and a fine of some 160 million won.[2] In 2015 Supreme Court returned to a lower court this ruling.[3]
