Prosecution Sends Appeal for Longer Prison Sentence for LADIES′ CODE Manager
LADIES′ CODE′s agency has made a statement as the prosecution made an appeal against the court′s decision regarding the manager, who caused the deaths of two LADIES′ CODE members.
On January 26, LADIES′ CODE′s agency rep told Newsen, "We just heard that the prosecution is making an appeal. We have also immediately sent in a petition of appeal after hearing about the prison sentence."
"We′re trying to have the manager′s side and the bereaved family reach an agreement. Honestly, it′s very difficult to even bring up the subject of settlement now. Since it′s a very careful issue, we′re trying to find a solution so that neither side gets hurt. It′s very difficult."
On January 15, the Suwon District Court ordered LADIES′ CODE manager, Park, who was prosecuted for violating the Act on Special Cases concerning the Settlement of Traffic Accidents, "Through the defendant′s confession and confirmatory evidence, he has been found guilty of the charges." The mananger was charged one year and two months in prison.
However, both LADIES′ CODE′s agency and the prosecution issued petitions of appeal saying that the sentence was too long and too short, respectively.
On September 3, 2014, LADIES′ CODE′s manager, Park, was speeding on the Yeongdong Expressway on the way to Seoul, when the van, carrying seven people, including LADIES′ CODE, slipped and hit the wall.
Through the accident, LADIES′ CODE members EunB and Kwon RiSe passed away, while four others were injured.
