Prosecution Appeals Not Guilty Ruling Of Park Yoochun’s Accuser, Claims “Rape Cannot Happen In A Small Bathroom”

Early July 2017, Ms. Song, the woman who had accused JYJ’s Park Yoochun of sexual assault in 2016, was found not guilty of false accusation and defamation by a unanimous jury vote.

The following week, the ruling was appealed by the prosecution.

The first trial of the appeal was held on the morning of September 5, where the prosecution revealed their reason for the appeal: “Although the initial trial resulted in a unanimous jury vote of ‘not guilty,’ it’s not possible for rape to occur in a small bathroom; what happened was that [Park Yoochun] did not give [Ms. Song] his number after having consensual intercourse, so she falsely accused him of rape.”

Park Yoochuns Accuser Deemed Not Guilty Of False Accusation

Early July 2017, Ms. Song, one of the women who accused JYJ’s Park Yoochun of sexual assault in 2016, was found not guilty of false accusation and defamation by a unanimous jury vote. Prosecution appealed the not-guilty ruling, and the first trial of the appeal was held early September, at which time prosecution made their case about why the initial ruling should be overturned.

During the final trial, held September 21, the judge panel ruled to uphold the initial ruling of not guilty, saying that Ms. Song’s sexual assault lawsuit was not completely groundless, considering Ms. Songs claims as well as witness testimonies, and that there is not enough evidence to prove that her accusations were false: “False accusation is acknowledged when the accusation directly goes against an objective fact, but it’s difficult to say that the intercourse was consensual based on Park Yoochun’s claims alone.”
