Ae Ho Kwon, a Pasadena-based Presbyterian minister, who is also Celine Dion extorter will be put in jail
Celine Dion extorter, Ae Ho Kwon, was found guilty over conspiracy, extortion and soliciting a bribe for threatening to go public with claims singer Celine Dion's husband, Angelil, has raped his wife in a Sin City hotel in 2000 unless Angelil gave him an amount of hush money. Kwon, who is a Pasadena-based Presbyterian minister, could actually end up to 12 years in jail and face deportation back to his native South Korea.
However, District Court Judge Jackie Glass has been so kind-hearted to Kwon that he, on Thursday, sentenced Kwon into only a minimum of 28 months in prison and did not require him to pay restitution. Kwon's attorney Lisa Rasmussen, on the contrary, didn't satisfy with the decision and planned to appeal, claiming she was never allowed to question Angelil on the witness stand about the alleged rape incident.
