[광주=뉴시스] Reporter Shin Dae-hee = An executive-level firefighter who hit and killed a pedestrian while driving while drunk was sentenced to probation.

Deputy Chief Judge Park Chan-woo of the 6th Criminal Division of the Gwangju District Court sentenced senior-level firefighter A (60), who was charged with violating the Special Act on Traffic Accident Handling Act (death) and violating the Road Traffic Act (drunk driving), to 1 year and 6 months in prison, 2 years of probation, and a fine It was announced on the 19th that he was sentenced to 3 million won. The judge also ordered Mr. A to attend 160 hours of community service and 40 hours of law-abiding driving lessons.

Person A was charged with driving drunk on a two-lane road in Songwol-dong, Naju-si, Jeollanam-do at 6:25 pm on November 13, last year, and killing a man in his 30s who was standing on the shoulder of a crosswalk.

Person A was also charged with driving a car 700 meters from the road in front of the karaoke room to the accident site while drinking alcohol with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.061% during the same time period.

A was investigated for driving at a speed of 87 km/h at an intersection where the speed limit was 60 km/h.

The judge pointed out, “The accident location is a crosswalk, so it cannot be considered that Mr. A’s negligence is small. There is a high possibility of being accused of driving under the influence of a firefighter who protects life and property from disasters.”

However, “the victim also got down in the lane at the pedestrian stop sign, which caused the accident, the bereaved family did not want to punish A by agreement with the victim’s family, and the fact that Mr. I decided on the sentence after considering everything.”
