Reporter Choi Sun-gil reports.
Former Short Track National Team coach Cho Jae-beom, who is sentenced to 1 year and 6 months in prison for assaulting Shim Seok-hee, etc., has denied sex crimes.
However, the court of the first instance said that it was difficult for false information to be intervened because the statement of the sim player was clear and specific.
On the other hand, former coach Joe was sentenced to 10 years and 6 months in prison for committing a sex offense and not making any efforts to deny the charges and be forgiven.
He also ordered a 200-hour sexual violence treatment program.
