Jeong Myeong-seok, a South Korean religious sect leader whose sex crimes were featured in the popular Netflix series, was sentenced to 23 years in prison on Friday, court officials said.

The Daejeon District Court in central South Korea said that it handed the prison term to Jeong after convicting him of sexual violence against three of his female followers from 2018-2021, The Korea Times reported.

78-year-old Jeong is the leader of the Christian Gospel Mission in South Korea, which is also known as Jesus Morning Star, or JMS. He was featured in the popular series “In the Name of God: A Holy Betrayal,” released earlier this year.
