Indonesian rocker NAZRIL 'ARIEL' IRHAM has been sentenced to more than three years in jail on pornography charges after a homemade sex tape appeared online.
The Peterpan frontman turned himself in to police in Jakarta last June (10) after the explicit footage leaked on the internet and hit headlines in the conservative Islamic state.
The video is said to show the singer in bed with two female Indonesian celebrities.
The 29 year old was jailed for three-and-a-half years on Monday (31Jan11) as police struggled to control thousand of fans and conservative campaigners who descended on the courtroom.
Judge Singgih Budi Prakoso said, "The defendant is legitimately and convincingly guilty of giving chances for others to spread, make and provide pornography... As a public figure, the defendant should be aware that fans might imitate his behaviour."
Irham was found guilty of violating the country's strict anti-pornography laws, which came into force in 2008.
