BEIJING (AP) — A Beijing court has convicted the teenage son of two celebrity military singers of rape and sentenced him to 10 years in prison.
The trial of 17-year-old Li Tianyi drew close attention from members of the Chinese public to see whether the judicial system would be lenient because of his family ties.
The Haidian Court in northwest Beijing delivered the verdict Thursday. It said Li and four others took a woman they had met in a bar in February to a nearby hotel room, where they beat her and sexually assaulted her.
Other defendants have been sentenced to jail for three to 12 years.
