Previously, 41-year-old actress Sung Hyun Ah was found guilty of prostitution and fined 2 million KRW (~ 2,000 USD) within 40 days.
However, in her appeals trial at the Suwon District Court on June 10, she was found innocent on all charges and the ruling of the fine in the original trial was canceled. The court said, "According to the laws of throwing out charges by the Supreme Court, we find the defendant innocent."
It took her 2 years and 6 months, but she's managed to throw out her charges! Afterwards, her attorney stated, "Ms. Sung was introduced to the man, 'A', claimed to be involved in the prostitution case, as a possible suitor for remarriage, but she realized that he no intention to marry, so they broke up. This is the truth and that is how another Supreme Court has decided on her innocence.
"Ms. Sung had met 'A' through another person who had also introduced her to her current husband whom she married, but because of 'A's history of meeting female celebrities for fun, Ms. Sung had been swept away by something like this.
"After Ms. Sung's first trial, she had felt wronged by so many things for a long time. She's been declared innocent now, but she's getting stung by attention still just because she's been in trial; please refrain so that Ms. Sung can recover from defamation and make a recovery in society."
She was not present on this day for health reasons.
