On July 15, Gangnam Police Station revealed that they officially forwarded their findings to the prosecution about Park Yoochun being not guilty of sexual assault due to difficulty in proving the use of force.
However, the police declared that the nature and code of conduct of the sexual acts between Park Yoochun and the first individual who pressed charges against him (hereafter referred to as “A”) to be solicitation of prostitution. Furthermore, since Park Yoochun had promised to pay A before having sex and failed to pay, he has also been charged with fraud.
The police were able to find evidence of this through restored text messages on A’s cell phone. Following their sexual encounter, A had messaged a friend about being promised money for sex with Park Yoochun.
Thus, the police sent their recommendation of indictment to the prosecution with charges of solicitation of prostitution and fraud for Park Yoochun. Likewise, A has been recommended for prostitution charges.
Furthermore, the police have also forwarded their findings about the second individual (hereafter referred to as “B”) who pressed charges against Park Yoochun. The police declared that B’s claims are false.
However, the third and fourth individuals were not charged with false accusation. The police stated that it is not valid to declare them guilty of false accusation just because the use of force was difficult to prove.
In regards to Park Yoochun pressing charges of false accusation and blackmail against A, A’s boyfriend, and A’s cousin; the police have acknowledged that the three individuals are guilty of blackmail. The police have stated that they will have a supplementary investigation regarding the charges of blackmail and forward their findings after doing so. They also confirmed that the DNA on the underwear A submitted proved to be a match for Park Yoochun.
Park Yoochun’s agency, C-JeS Entertainment, responded to reports of him being charged with solicitation of prostitution and stated, “We cannot acknowledge the police’s recommendation of indictment for charges of solicitation of prosititution as it is completely different from the truth. We once again clearly state that there is no truth to Park Yoochun soliciting prostitution. We will cooperate with the prosecution’s investigation so that his innocence will be proven.”
Previously, Park Yoochun was accused of sexual assault by four individuals. He then sued the first two individuals for false accusation and other charges.
