Japanese artist Megumi Igarashi attends a press conference on April 13, 2017, Tokyo, Japan. Igarashi also known as Rokudenashiko was declared partly innocent by the Tokyo District Court, today April 13, after first being arrested in 2014 for distributing 3D data of her genitals as part of a crowd funding project to make a kayak based on her vulva. She had been found guilty in 2016 of breaking obscenity laws and fined JPY 400,000 but appealed that ruling. She was found guilty of distributing obscene data via the internet but innocent for displaying her art. Her fiancé Mike Scott of The Waterboys was also in Tokyo to attend the hearing.
