NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Jurors have found music producer Baeho "Bobby" Shin guilty on multiple counts, including especially aggravated kidnapping.

The jury was charged Thursday morning and deliberated for much of the day before they reconvened on Friday.

The District Attorney’s Office confirmed Shin was found guilty on six of nine counts, including especially aggravated kidnapping. He faces a maximum 56 years and minimum 15 years in prison.

He was found guilty on the following counts:

  • Count one – especially aggravated kidnapping: 15-25 years felony
  • Count two – aggravated sexual battery: 1-2 year Felony
  • Counts three, four, five – aggravated assault: 3-6 years each
  • Domestic assault – misdemeanor: up to a year

He still faces two more cases not yet set. The status hearing on those will be same day as his sentencing on April 2.

Shin took the stand on Wednesday and showed little emotion, often having to use an interpreter.

The prosecution showed the court pictures of the victim bloody and bruised with chipped teeth. Shin maintained his innocence and his attorney argued that the state couldn't prove the victim’s injuries were made by Shin.

Shin is a Grammy Award winning engineer, who has worked with artists like Carrie Underwood, Kacey Musgraves, Tori Kelly, Francesca Battistelli and Brian McKnight.
