On the 25th, the Jeju District Court Criminal Chamber 1 (Judge Oh Ji-ae) sentenced A, who was put on trial on charges of violating the law on aggravated punishment for specific crimes (dangerous driving injuries) and quasi-forced harassment, to four years in prison and arrested him in court on the grounds of concerns about escape.
It also ordered A to complete a 40-hour sexual violence treatment program and restrict employment for five years at institutions related to children and adolescents and institutions related to the disabled.
On October 18, 2022, at around 5:40 a.m., A drove in excess of the speed limit while intoxicated on a street in Pyoseon-myeon, Seogwipo-si, Jeju, and crashed into another vehicle.
At that time, A’s blood alcohol concentration was at the level of revocation of his license (more than 0.08%). In addition, Jeju United goalkeepers Kim Dong-joon, Yoo Yeon-soo, Lim Joon-seop and trainers were on board.
Yoo Yeon-soo was seriously injured in the accident and underwent emergency surgery, but he eventually suffered fatal injuries such as paraplegia. After that, Yoo Yeon-soo rehabilitated for nearly a year, but eventually retired in November last year.
In addition, A is also accused of molesting a woman who was sleeping somewhere in Jeju on January 15 last year.
Earlier in December last year, the prosecution demanded a five-year prison term for A, saying, “There was no effort to recover the damage.”
In response, the court said, “The accused is of bad nature, such as causing an accident while drinking and driving,” adding, “He seriously injured Yoo, causing him to retire as a professional soccer player, causing the victims difficult to recover.”
After the sentence, Yoo Yeon-soo’s mother said shortly after the sentence, “I didn’t hear an apology even in court, but I’m so sad that the sentence is less than the old sentence.”
He also expressed his unfairness, saying, “Our son has to live with a disability for the rest of his life, but A goes back to his daily life after serving four years in prison.”
