16 Jul - Businessman Huang Yiqing's prison sentence will not absolve him of his responsibility towards his child with ex-wife Crystal Huang (also known as Huang Yi).
Huang, who has been paying child support for his daughter Alice since his divorce with his actress wife in 2014, will have to continue doing so in prison, according to an attorney interviewed by Epoch Times.
The lawyer explained that a sentence or the execution of a sentence does not exempt the party's civil obligation or liabilities - that is Huang will have to continue to pay support for his child despite being in prison.
In the 10 July court session held at the Hongkou District Court, the judge sentenced Huang 15 years in prison for the crime of drug trafficking. In addition, he is also stripped of his political rights for three years while a part of his assets will be confiscated by the government.
According to reports, Huang had been selling methamphetamine between December 2018 and July 2019 to a client near his home in Shanghai.
