Former Lotte Giants pitcher Seo Joon-won, who was charged with violating the Sexual Exploitation of Children and Adolescents Act (making and distributing sexual exploitation materials), admitted that he knew the victim was a minor at the time of the incident.
According to a report by Yonhap News Agency on Thursday, the Busan District Court Criminal Division 5 (Chief Judge Jang Jong-seok) opened the second trial of Seo Jun-won, who was charged with violating the Sexual Exploitation of Children and Adolescents Act (producing and distributing sexual exploitation materials, etc.) this morning.
Seo’s defense team, which argued that “there is no dispute about the facts, but Seo Jun-won was not aware that the victim was a minor at the time” during the first trial on March 31, changed its position to “admit all the prosecution facts and agree with the evidence” during the second trial.
According to the prosecution’s facts, Seo Jun-won got to know the minor victim, Miss A, through an open chat room on a mobile messenger on August 18 last year. He tricked her into giving him pocket money and demanded that she send him nude photos of herself.토토사이트
Prosecutors said that despite knowing that the victim was a minor, Seo Jun-won sent her sexually explicit messages on 60 occasions and asked her to take photos of her body on seven occasions, which he then used to create sexual exploitation material.
In particular, Seo allegedly demanded to see her masturbating on a video call, and when she refused, he threatened to distribute the photos he had sent.
