TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – According to a Supreme Court decision Wednesday, socialite Justin Lee (李宗瑞) will have to pay a total of NT$15.25 million (US$493,600) to seven more of his sex scandal victims.
Lee, 33, is already serving a prison sentence of 39 years and two months for having drugged and sexually assaulted nine women, while he was sentenced to pay compensation of NT$12.25 million (US$396,500) to the same nine women.
Wednesday’s Supreme Court ruling brings the total of the compensation payments to 16 women to NT$27.5 million, but two more cases were still being dealt with by the courts, the Apple Daily reported.
The facts date back to the period from 2009 to 2011, when Lee, the son of a prominent banker, spiked the drinks of women at Taipei nightclubs and took them back to his home, often raping them while they were unconscious and filming the acts. [FULL STORY]
