Indonesian pop star gets jail time in sex-tape scandal

(Updated 1:04 p.m.) BANDUNG, Indonesia — Judges say an Indonesian pop star who rocked this predominantly Muslim nation after making several homemade sex tapes will spend the next 3 1/2 years in jail. Nazril "Ariel" Irham, lead singer of the band Peterpan, was found guilty Monday of violating the country's strict anti-pornography law. Presiding Judge Singgih Budi Prakoso told the court the star made the videos with two celebrity girlfriends and did nothing to prevent their wide distribution on the Internet. The judge said Ariel also showed no remorse. In addition to jail time, Ariel was fined $25,000. — AP
