A son in his 30s who wielded a weapon at his father for not celebrating his birthday was commuted in the second trial. 

Yesterday (20th), the 2nd Criminal Division of the Daegu High Court (High Court Judge Yang Yeong-hee) overturned the original sentence of 3 years and 6 months in prison for 30-year-old A, who was charged with attempted murder of an ascendant, and sentenced him to 2 years in prison.

A was handed over to trial on charges of attempting to kill his father B with a knife at his home in Dong-gu, Daegu in January last year. 

Person A asked for a birthday present, but it was investigated that the crime was enraged when Mr. B said, "You are all grown up, so why do I take care of your birthday?" 

In addition, A is also accused of attempting to kill her cousin C by stabbing her with a knife in May of last year.

It was revealed that he committed the crime because Mr. C did not agree with him while on the phone about Mr. B's alcohol dependence. 

The first trial court ruled, "It was committed again within eight months of the attempted murder. It seems that he gave up the crime when he thought that he could not kill due to his father's defense."

He was sentenced to three years and six months in prison, saying, "Even considering that the victims and their relatives are pleading for mercy and promising appropriate protection, we cannot help but hold them accountable for their actions and consequences." 

The court of appeals said, "The guilt is not light when you look at the method and contents of the crime, its anti-human nature, and the degree of injury." We took into account the fact that it seems crazy and that the victims do not want to be punished,” he said. 

This is a 'news pick'.
