On February 7th, it was reported that the mother (44) of an unnamed member (20) from popular idol group AKB48 was arrested due to suspicions that she violated the Tokyo
Metropolitan Ordinance Regarding the Healthy Development of Youths. Last November, she allegedly committed an indecent act in her home in Hachiouji-city with a 15-year-old acquaintance who was her son’s senior from junior high school.
According to the report, the mother admitted to the charge. She stated that she has performed the indecent act several times after being urged to do so, and she had full knowledge that it was an inappropriate act. This case has already been filed as a summary indictment, and she will face a fine of 500,000 yen (approximately $6,511 USD).
The name of the AKB48 member has not been included in the official reports, however, on the February 16th issue (to be released on February 8th) of weekly magazine “Shukan Bunshun”, it is reported that it was the mother of Takahashi Minami.
On Takahashi’s latest entry (made on January 30th) via the No Sleeves’ official blog, there are over 10,000 supportive comments by the fans.
