Prosecution Requests 1-Year Prison Sentence For Park Soo Young (Lizzy) Regarding DUI Case
On September 27, Park Soo Young’s (Lizzy’s) first hearing regarding her DUI case was held at Seoul Central District Court.
On May 19, Park Soo Young was booked without detention for drunk driving after she ran into a taxi while driving in the neighborhood of Cheongdam in Seoul’s Gangnam district on May 18 at 10 p.m. KST. Her blood alcohol level at the time was over 0.08 percent, which is enough to have her driver’s license revoked.
Then on July 1, legal sources reported that the seventh criminal division of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office had indicted Park Soo Young without detention on the charges of dangerous driving under the Additional Punishment Law on Specific Crimes and violating the Road Traffic Act by driving under the influence of alcohol.
Prior to the trial, Lizzy made a heartfelt apology for the incident during her Instagram live broadcast.
During the first hearing, the prosecution requested the court to sentence Park Soo Young to one year in prison for driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.197%. She admitted her wrongdoings and commented, “It was a wrong decision at the moment. I promise not to do anything disgraceful again.”
