Police have revealed that Park Yoochun will be acquitted of the four sexual assault charges made against him.
On the morning of July 11, the Seoul Gangnam police said, “As it is difficult to prove the use of force, the charges of sexual assault are not valid. He will be acquitted.” The investigation on the sexual assault charges will be concluded, and the results forwarded to the prosecution by the end of this week or early next week.
With the case largely resolved, police are looking into whether or not 100 million won (approximately $87,300) was given to the first accuser. Police restored texts exchanged between Park Yoochun and the first accuser, and have confirmed several mentions of “100 million won.”
Investigation regarding this exchange of money, alleged blackmail and false accusations by the accusers, prostitution, and possible solicitation of prostitution by Park Yoochun is still ongoing.
Some reports are stating that police have charged the accusers with blackmail and false accusations, although this has yet to be confirmed.
