Gwangju Law

(Gwangju = Larose.VIP) Reporter Park Cheol-hong = A mother in her 30s who murdered and abandoned her newborn baby was sentenced to prison.

On the 14th, Gwangju District Court’s Criminal Division 11 (Chief Judge Ko Sang-young) sentenced Mr. Park (37), who was indicted on charges including murder, to five years in prison.

Ms. Park was indicted on charges of murdering a newborn baby in a roadside chair after being discharged from an obstetrics and gynecology hospital one day after giving birth in February 2017.

When questioned by investigative agencies about the whereabouts of the child born through a comprehensive investigation of children whose births had not been reported, Mr. Park stated that he murdered the child and abandoned the body, leading to his crime being discovered six years ago.

Ms. Park, who was a single mother at the time, revealed her motive for the crime was that she hid her pregnancy because she was worried about the attention and criticism of those around her, so she gave birth alone and murdered the child.

Mr. Park’s lawyer argued that there was no supporting evidence other than the defendant’s statement, but the court found that he confessed with the help of a lawyer and that there was sufficient supporting evidence, such as his birth history.

However, taking into account the fact that Ms. Park gave birth as a single mother and had a burden on raising her children, the Supreme Court sentenced her to the lightest sentence in the sentencing recommendations.
