Kim Dae-hyun (LG Twins), who was handed over to trial due to suspicion of ‘school violence’, was acquitted. If so, what will happen to Lee Young-ha (Doosan Bears), who was identified as the perpetrator along with Kim Dae-hyun?
An LG Twins official said on the 10th, “Kim Dae-hyun was acquitted this morning (10th).” Kim Dae-hyun, who enlisted in active duty in July 2021 and was serving his military service, was suspected of “school violence” during his time at Sunrin Internet High School, and was tried in a military court last year on charges of special assault.
It was in February 2021 that the controversy over “academic violence” began. At the time, Mr. A, who revealed that he was a junior of Kim Dae-hyun and Lee Young-ha, revealed that he had suffered school violence through an online community. Later, through a current affairs program, Mr. A argued for school violence by Lee Young-ha and Kim Dae-hyun.
At the time, Lee Young-ha claimed, “The part that appeared on the air is not true at all. It is a fact that there is no specific person designated to commit violence,” and Kim Dae-hyun also drew a line on suspicion of school violence. After that, the suspicion of school violence seemed to disappear. However, Mr. A reported the fact to the Sports Ethics Center last year, and eventually a trial was held.
First of all, Kim Dae-hyun, who had been tried by a military tribunal since last year, was acquitted. It is known that there were many cases in which the statements of Mr. A, who claimed to be a victim, did not match the background of Kim Dae-hyun’s acquittal. In particular, testimonies such as the time of assault were inconsistent. In the end, the court judged that Mr. A’s claim was not credible, and acquitted Kim Dae-hyun.
Then, how will Lee Young-ha’s trial proceed? First of all, Lee Young-ha and Kim Dae-hyun have different positions on several issues. This is because there are cases where Lee Young-ha and Kim Dae-hyun were pointed out as perpetrators together, but there are also charges that only Lee Young-ha is receiving. However, Kim Dae-hyun’s acquittal is definitely a positive factor for Lee Young-ha’s side. This is because Kim Dae-hyeon’s ruling has no choice but to affect Lee Young-ha’s trial.
Attorney Kim Seon-woong, legal representative for Lee Young-ha, said, “Since there are cases in which players Dae-hyun Kim and Young-ha Lee were pointed out the same at the same place, I think we will get the same result as Dae-hyun Kim.” In the two cases, only Lee Young-ha is applicable.”
However, it seems that it will take some time for Lee Young-ha to return to the mound. Lee Young-ha’s third trial will be held on the 20th. A place to hear the arguments of additional witnesses requested by the prosecution. It also takes time to interrogate the witnesses requested by Lee Young-ha. Depending on the situation, the 4th and 5th trials may be held, so the final judgment of Lee Young-ha will inevitably be delayed. 메이저놀이터
Attorney Kim Seon-woong said, “We (Lee Young-ha’s side) have more criminal charges than Kim Dae-hyun’s, so we need more evidence or proof of witnesses accordingly. And the Seoul Western District Court has a lot of cases. “I think it seems to be,” he said. “First of all, there are cases similar to Kim Dae-hyun and the same case, so it is true that there is an advantage.”
Doosan will begin its spring camp schedule in Australia from the end of January. Lee Young-ha’s joining the camp is expected to be impossible. The final verdict will affect his career as an athlete, but like Kim Dae-hyun, if he is acquitted, he will have to build his body through personal training. On the other hand, Kim Dae-hyun, who will complete his military service on the 11th, will join the spring camp to prepare for the 2023 season, unless there are any special problems with his body.
On the other hand, Kim Dae-hyun, who received LG’s first nomination in the 2016 rookie draft, has played in 130 KBO league games, recording 16 wins, 21 losses and 12 holds with an average ERA of 5.90. He has an ERA of 4.81.
