Lawyer’s father’s debt for wasted entertainment expenses… 30-year-old son’s ‘failure’

© News1
A man in his 30s works in Seocho-dong Law Town. Working in his father’s office, a lawyer, he was plagued with huge debts.

The debt, worth 4 billion won, was borrowed from acquaintances by forging a loan certificate in the name of his father’s office. Mr. A, who was lavishly squandered for entertainment and living expenses, paid off the debt by ‘blocking it’, but there was a limit.

Mr. A, who was drowning in debt, came to think of something he shouldn’t have done. He decided to wipe out the debt by having his father, the debtor, die.

In June last year, Mr. A searched for sentences and words such as ‘if you hit it with a blunt weapon’ on your mobile phone. I bought a blunt weapon and kept it in the car, but I did not dare to commit a crime against my father with a bare mind. Person A visited a neuropsychiatric medical institution and was prescribed medication for insomnia. He headed to Seocho-dong. There, Mr. A, who had his father on board, got off near the subway station, said, “I have to go somewhere else because something has happened,” and climbed first, then got into the car and swung a blunt weapon at his father. However, the father mistakenly thought he had hit something on his head and told his son to go to the hospital, saying, “I am bleeding.”

A, who arrived at the hospital parking lot, wielded a blunt weapon. When his father reassured him that he would not report it to get out of the crisis, he dropped him off near the road and fled.

Person A was indicted on five counts, including attempted murder of an ascendant, violation of the Act on the Aggravated Punishment of Specific Economic Crimes, fraud, forgery of private documents, and use of forged private documents.

He forged 98 private documents for about 1 year and 10 months until June 2020 and defrauded 27 people. He cheated on the principal by paying interest and extorting 11.1 billion won. However, somehow I paid off and now there is only about 16 billion won left.

The court said, “The quality of the crime is extremely poor in terms of the circumstances and methods of the crime, the persistence and repeatability, the size of the victims and the amount of damage,” the court said.

On the 17th, the 12th Criminal Settlement of the Seoul Eastern District Court (Chief Judge Park Sang-gu) sentenced A to 8 years in prison and ordered the victims to pay 8.3 billion won in compensation.

The father, who had been physically and mentally injured by his son’s betrayal, said he still did not want punishment in court.
