The first trial of SBS anchor Kim Seong-jun, who is accused of secretly photographing a woman’s body at a subway station, resumes in five months.
According to the court on the 30th, the Seoul Southern District Court announced that on the morning of July 21, a trial for criminal violations of the special law (shooting using cameras, etc.) related to the punishment of sexual assault crimes by former anchor Kim Seong-jun will be proceeded with the hearing of Judge Ryu Hee-hyun.
The court judged that the prosecution’s indictment at the 2nd trial preparation date on February 4, 7 of the nine evidences of illegal shooting of former anchor Kim Seong-jun was not warranted and could be considered as ‘evidence of illegal collection’, to the Supreme Court. The trial was postponed to wait for another similar case decision.
On January 10, prosecutors sentenced 6 months imprisonment and 3 years employment limitation to Kim Seong-jun. “The defendant secretly shot women’s body for nine times against the victim’s will at Yeongdeungpo-gu Office station. It was judged by considering the number of times and the number of times.”
Meanwhile, former anchor Kim Seong-jun was arrested on the scene on July 3, last year, after illegally taking photos of women’s legs. The victim reported her case to the police. At that time, former anchor Kim Seong-jun denied the crime, but it was controversial when a photo of the victim was found on a cell phone. The former anchorman Kim Seong-jun submitted his resignation letter to SBS the day after the incident.
