Man who attacked woman in hotel sentenced to two years | Updated: 2016-11-04 16:02

Beijing Chaoyang District Court sentenced Li, a man who attacked a woman in a hotel earlier this year, to two years in prison and a fine of 5,000 yuan ($740) for pandering on Friday afternoon, reported Beijing News.

The local procuratorate announced that the 25-year-old from Henan province only received a junior middle school education and was unemployed at the time of committing the crime.

Li admitted that he belongs to a prostitution ring and he was acting as a procurer on the night of the attack.

Li usually got commission fees from prostitutes as a cut of what they charged clients.

The reason Li attacked the victim is because he thought the victim was a prostitute who belonged to another prostitution ring potentially competing against his.

That night he noticed the victim couldn't find her door key in the elevator which usually happened to prostitutes who came to clients in the hotel but didn't have door keys pretended to have them.
