Court concludes Park Yoochun has fulfilled his order to pay sexual assault victim 'A' for her damages

AKP STAFF

Back on April 22 former singer/actor Park Yoochun was spotted attending a mandatory trial at the Uijeongbu District Court in Gyeonggi Province for failing to fulfill the court's order in his previous sexual assault case. 

During the trial, the court came to a decision of 'no punishment' for Park Yoochun, as it was revealed that he has fulfilled his order to pay his sexual assault victim 'A' in the given time since he was summoned to court for the order violation. 

As previously reported, sexual assault victim 'A' sued Park Yoochun back in 2016 and won her case, after which the court ordered Park Yoochun to pay 'A' approximately 50 million KRW (~ 40,000 USD) in damage compensations. 

Meanwhile, Park Yoochun's appearance at court back on April 22 marked his first public appearance in front of press in approximately 9 months - since he was sentenced to a probation period for his illegal drug use case.

It may seem strange to westerners, but most assault cases (whether sexual or physical) end in civil mediation. That's the style of justice here. Cops will give you the choice when you report the crime. Victims don't want to go to court and have THEIR reputations dragged through the mud even though they're the victims. This does essentially mean rich people can get away with whatever, because they can offer a sum of money that would look foolish to turn down when the courts are already not guaranteed to serve justice. Get $40,000 or spend months in court where you might end up losing in the end, receiving no compensation, going into debt to your lawyers, and have everyone thinking you're some harlot? It's gross, but it's considered the way that things are done. Get the money and sort of disappear, while the rich person continues on with their life until the next time.

here again AKP. It means that they both come to an agreement and settled out of court. lol.I knew this will be the verdict since both are not guilty in the criminal court. Why does AKP reported only from one side viewpoint. If you are unfamilar with the legal system, don't make a mockery with your content.
