It was on the 22nd of last month that an incumbent judge at a local court was caught by the police on charges of prostitution at a hotel in Gangnam, Seoul.
He was engaged in prostitution outside the workplace in broad daylight on weekdays.
The police, who were undercover after receiving a tip that prostitution was taking place at a hotel in Gangnam, Seoul, arrested a prostitute in a hotel room and identified the identity of Mr. A.
It is known that Mr. A stated, “I had sex with a woman in her 30s whom I met through a conditional dating app who came to Seoul on a business trip for her work.”
Mr. A revealed her judge’s identity at the police and admitted her crime. As a result of the police investigation, Mr. A was found to have participated in the judgment of past sex crime cases, such as sentenced to a heavy sentence to a seller of child sexual exploitation videos.
The police handed her over to the prosecution without detention, and Mr. A will soon be investigated by the Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office.
The Supreme Court said, “We cannot confirm whether Mr. A was disciplined,” and said, “We will inform the public of the disciplinary results through the official gazette in the future.”
In 2016, a chief judge belonging to the Court Administration Office was caught prostitution in an officetel in Yeoksam-dong, Gangnam-gu.
At the time, the Supreme Court imposed a three-month salary cut, but the judge later moved to a large law firm.
