American Student Sentenced To 15 Years Hard Labor In A North Korean Prison
Otto Warmbier, a 21-year-old University of Virginia student was sentenced to 15 years hard labor by a North Korean court recently. Otto was there on a trip when he attempted to steal a political sign and bring it home. Otto says his church back home offered him money for the sign which is why he took it. He was arrested back in January while he was boarding his plane and now he will serve 15 years in a North Korean prison with hard labor.
