S. Korean lawmaker draws jail term on embezzlement charges
SEOUL, March 15 (Yonhap) -- A Seoul court on Tuesday convicted a lawmaker of the main opposition party of embezzlement and sentenced him to three and a half years in prison.

Rep. Kang Sung-jong of the Democratic Party was detained last September for embezzling 8.1 billion won (US$7.1 million) from a private school foundation where he served as chief of its board between 2003 and 2010.
