A new employee in his 20s who stole tens of millions of won from the company within just two months of being employed was sentenced to a fine.

The 7th Criminal Division of the Gwangju District Court (Judge Lee Ho-san) announced yesterday (23rd) that it had sentenced 22-year-old A, who was charged with fraudulent use of computers, to a fine of 7 million won.

Mr. A was charged with secretly transferring 22 million won of the operating funds of a company in Naju, Jeollanam-do, where he works, to his account nine times from April 20 to 28.

Previously, Mr. A, who worked for this company on February 22nd, used the method of stealing OTP cards from the accountant's bag during lunchtime when co-workers were away, and then transferred money through internet banking.

Mr. A spent most of the stolen money on sports betting.

The court said, "The defendant transferred the money in this case without permission and used it for sports betting, and it is normal that the amount of damage is not small." We have comprehensively considered the fact that we are acknowledging our mistakes,” he said.

“They will be sentenced to the same fine as ordering, but will not be detained in court to help recover the damage.”
