Samsung boss gets five years in jail
A South Korean court jailed Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Jay Y. Lee for five years on Friday.
The Seoul Central District Court was delivering its verdict on charges against Lee, 49, ranging from bribery to perjury in a scandal that led to the ouster in March of the then president, Park Geun-hye.
Lee, who denied wrongdoing, has been in detention since February.
