Kang Dong Ho, better known as NU’EST‘s Baekho, has been found not guilty of sexual assault.
Reports indicate that prosecutors have cleared Baekho of sexual assault charges, and have since dismissed the case.
Representatives from his agency, Pledis Entertainment, have confirmed the news of Baekho’s innocence.
“Today, we received an official notification from the prosecution that all charges have been dropped. This proves that the incident never happened, and Baekho is innocent.” — Pledis Entertainment Representative
Last June, an anonymous online community user known as “Miss A” claimed to have been sexually assaulted by Baekho in 2009. Charges were officially filed in September of 2017.
The dismissal of the case brings a close to a 8-month legal dispute.
