Ex-S. Korean spy chief sent to prison over election scandal

A former South Korean spy chief is heading to prison after being found guilty of ordering an illicit online campaign to support then-ruling party candidate and current President Park Geun-hye ahead of the 2012 presidential election. The Seoul High Court sentenced Won Sei-hoon to three years in prison Monday for violating an election law and another law banning the National Intelligence Service from engaging in local politics. A district court last year handed Won a suspended prison term when it convicted him of violating only the law banning spies from politicking.
