On the 27th, the Supreme Court’s ruling on Jeong Kyung-shim, a former professor at Dongyang University, the wife of former Justice Minister Cho Kuk, who was sentenced to four years in prison in the first and second trial on charges such as corruption in children’s entrance exams, will come out on the 27th.

The second part of the Supreme Court decided to hold the sentencing date for Professor Jeong, who was charged with obstruction of business and violation of the Capital Market Act, at 10:15 am on the 27th.

Professor Jeong was indicted on September 6, 2019, when her husband, former Minister Cho’s personnel hearing, was held on charges of forging his daughter Cho Min’s certificate of commendation at Dongyang University.

The former minister and wife of Cho agreed to invest more in a private equity fund than their publicly disclosed assets, and they were also accused of using illicit influence in the children’s entrance exam process.

The prosecution, which started a forced investigation in August 2019, added 14 charges against Professor Jeong, who was arrested and indicted in November, three months later.

The court of first instance pleaded guilty to most of the 15 charges and sentenced them to four years in prison, a fine of 500 million won, and a fine of 140 million won.

In August last year, the appeals court also found guilty of allegations of corruption in the children’s entrance examination and sentenced them to four years in prison, the same as in the first trial.

However, as some of them were acquitted, such as the charge of making profits by obtaining undisclosed information about secondary battery makers in advance, the fines and fines were reduced to 50 million won and 10 million won, respectively.
