Lawyers in gang rape trial punished
Six lawyers involved in the case of Li Tianyi, son of famous PLA singer Li Shuangjiang, have received disciplinary punishment, the website of Legal Daily reported on Thursday. Li, 17, was sentenced at Beijing court in September to 10 years for gang rape. Before the trial, Li’s lawyers posted online that Li was innocent and viewed the case as prostitution, which angered the complainant’s attorney. The two sides later had a debate online. Many details about the defendants and the victim were disclosed, and some specific processes of the trial were also released by the lawyers.
