“Female golfer was driving” lied Iru…”Mother’s dementia” appeal for sentence

Prosecutors have asked for a jail sentence for singer and actor Cho Iru (real name Cho Sung-hyun, 40), who was accused of driving under the influence of alcohol and switching drivers in coordination with his passenger.

At the first hearing of Cho’s case of aiding and abetting the commission of a crime, aiding and abetting drunkenness, driving under the influence of alcohol and speeding under the Road Traffic Act, held at the Seoul West District Court’s Criminal Division 11 on Monday, prosecutors asked the court to sentence Cho to one year in prison and a fine of 100,000 won.

“Although he is a first-time offender, he repeatedly drove drunk for a short period of time and considered the need to strengthen the punishment for drunk driving메이저사이트,” the prosecutor said, requesting a one-year prison term and a fine of 100,000 won.

Cho’s defence lawyer admitted all the charges, saying, “I admit all the facts of the prosecution and am deeply remorseful.” “We ask for leniency in consideration of his contribution to the Hallyu movement in Indonesia and the fact that he has a mother with dementia,” he said.

Cho was investigated for driving under the influence in September last year in Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul. During the police investigation, Cho made a false statement, saying, “My passenger was driving.” His passenger, a female professional golfer named A, also claimed that “I was driving,” so the police detained him and sent only A to the prosecutor’s office for extradition.

The prosecution found that Cho had helped A make the false statement. However, there was no evidence that Cho actively requested or coerced A to switch drivers, so he was sent to trial for aiding and abetting instead.

Separately, Cho was also charged with aiding and abetting drunk driving by giving his car keys to an acquaintance with whom he had been drinking on 19 December last year to park his car, and speeding while driving while intoxicated on the same day.

At that time, Cho’s car hit the right guardrail and overturned in the area between Hannam Bridge and Dongho Bridge in the direction of Guri on Gangbyeon North Road. Cho’s blood alcohol level was 0.075 percent, which is equivalent to a licence suspension. Cho was found to have been driving at more than 180 kilometres per hour, more than twice the 80 kilometres per hour speed limit.
