Sekin verbally abused the young woman who entered his apartment, threatened Eddie with a knife, and physically assaulted him with his hand.

A lawsuit was filed against Sekin in the second criminal court in the first instance, alleging “simple sexual harassment.” Denying the allegations, Sekin was sentenced by a court to 9 years in prison. The court took the positive attitude and behavior of the accused during the trial as the reason for good behavior and reduced the sentence to 7 years and 6 months.

When he got off the elevator, he said he had a panic attack and started screaming. He left the house. When his father came out, I thought they were plotting against me. I didn’t tear DA’s shirt. I will take action against him No. I have heard that there were allegations against some of them before. I think DA has a mental disorder. I do not accept complaints. I demand an investigation into his case and I demand his release, “he said.
