Ko Young-wook may have to wear ankle bracelet

Disgraced entertainer Ko Young-wook has been arrested and charged for sexually assaulting minors.
The Seoul Western District Prosecutor’s Office said on Jan. 23 that a decision on whether the former idol singer will have to wear an anklet, as is protocol on repeat sex offenders, is yet undecided.
Ko will be probed further while under watch to make the decision.

Last month Ko approached a 13-year-old girl on her way home, lured her into his car then molested her.

Prior to that, from 2010 to last year, Ko was accused of raping three girls in their teens at his place. An arrest warrant for Ko was requested on Jan. 8 and granted two days later.
