Sociologist imprisoned over "ideology"
According to the LA Times, this morning:

A sociologist was handed a seven-year prison sentence Tuesday on charges of spreading North Korean ideology, in a case that many here have criticized as an anachronism harking back to the Cold War period.

The article describes Song as a mentee of Jurgen Habermas. And there are allegations of espionage as well. Does anyone know anything else about this?
