Former short-track national team leader Hyo-jun Lim (24) was sentenced to one year in prison for allegedly forcing a junior athlete during training.
On the 26th, prosecutors demanded one year in prison and two years in probation against Im Hyo-jun, who was accused of deportation in the first trial held at the hearing of Deputy Chief Justice Deok-sik Oh, the 20th detective of the Seoul Central District Court.
Im Hyo-jun is accused of exposing a part of the body by removing the pants of the national team junior B, who climbs the climbing apparatus during training at Jincheon National Team on June 17 last year.
Player B reported that he had been sexually harassed, and reported to the national team coach and athletes' village. The Korea Ice Federation judged Hyo-Jun Lim's behavior as sexual harassment after examining the CCTV video, and disciplined him for one year.
Hyo-jun Lim filed for reconsideration, saying that the disciplinary action was unfair, but the Korea Sports Association's Sports Fair Committee dismissed it in November last year.
Hyo-Jun Lim admitted that he had “no intention to commit” while admitting the facts at the trial. Hyo-Jun Lim's lawyer said, “It was not a lawful act of coercion.
On the other hand, the victim said, “When Hyo-Jun Lim's pants went down, he had to apologize or apologize immediately, and he ran away and cried out by calling the victim's name. In this case, it must be viewed as a forced harassment. ”
The prosecution said, “I took into consideration the fact that Im Hyo-jun was punished for suspension of player qualifications.” The sentence will be held on May 7 at 2 pm.
