The Supreme Court's decision today (27th) against Jeong Kyung-shim, a former Dongyang University professor who was handed over to trial on charges of falsifying documents related to his child's entrance exams. It seems that whether or not the prosecution will recognize the evidence ability of the Dongyang University PC, etc., will be an important criterion for judging.

Former Dongyang University professor Jeong Kyung-shim, who was sentenced to four years in prison in the second trial on charges of corruption in the child's entrance exam and private equity investment, will be sentencing this morning.

There are three major charges applied against Professor Jeong.

Allegations of forging documents such as citations stamped with the seal of the president of Dongyang University in order to pass his daughter Jo Min to medical graduate school, charges of instructing the destruction of evidence such as PCs containing counterfeiting circumstances, and stocks using undisclosed information through private equity fund manager Corlink PE It is a transaction charge.

The first count was sentenced to 4 years in prison and a fine of 500 million won, and the second count was sentenced to 4 years in prison and a fine of 50 million won, respectively.

In today's sentencing, it seems that the evidence capacity of the PC in the lecture room, which the prosecution received arbitrarily from the teaching assistant at Dongyang University, will be an important criterion for judging.

This is because of the jurisprudence proposed by the Supreme Court in November last year, after the appeal trial.

At that time, the Supreme Court unanimously acquitted the perpetrator for not participating in the forensic process of the perpetrator's cell phone submitted by the victim of illegal filming.

If this principle is applied, there is a possibility that the evidence capacity of the lecturer's lounge PC will not be recognized.

However, there is a view that the teaching assistant of Dongyang University is in the position of a custodian who can submit PCs, so attention is being paid to what the Supreme Court will decide today.
