If you have too much power as a star, it can happen that you exploit it. Move people to do something they would never do otherwise. Power is way up there in Yo Oli’s case. He exploited his reach on social media to get rich off minors. In 2015, his first video appeared, which he had published on “Yo Oli”.
For several years he published some controversial videos. In some videos he was seen holding girls and pressuring them to kiss him. With statements like: “They come on their own” he produced his own rap. His channel was especially popular with younger viewers. He collected more than 300,000 subscribers. But where else did he skim off the top?
Junus W. is his real name, also known as Yo Oli on the Internet. He is currently stirring up YouTube and even the gossip media. The case: Yo Oli has been the talk of the town lately. One does not really have a view and the proof situation in the Internet looks also rather mau. What now?
Yo Oli’s trial has been underway since November 27, 2019. He is said to have lured girls aged 13, 14 and 16 into his car under a pretext. Here it is assumed that he exploited his reach on YouTube and Instagram and promised the girls that he would make them famous on the net. The girls were all hoping for a joint video shoot with him.
According to some statements, Junus W. used some rented cars to commit his acts. These cars, he equipped with a mattress, on which he then sexually abused the girls allegedly. Mostly he drove to remote parking lots in North Rhine-Westphalia and Schleswig-Holstein. In total, he is accused of five alleged acts in the period from February to June 2019.
The charges of the 25-year-old from Berlin are sexual assault, rape, child abuse, deprivation of liberty and assault.
On June 19, Junus W. was already arrested but already one month later he was released under some conditions to stay away from social media. But he violated these conditions and since then he is, since August 13, 2019 again in custody. For the trial, 8 trial days are scheduled until December 20. For the protection of juveniles and minors, the public was excluded for the time being.
