Not Guilty Verdict for U.S. Government Employee with U.S. 8th Army: Announcement

We are proud to announce that, today, we received a not guilty verdict at the Seoul Central District Court for a crime concerning the trafficking in contraband into Korea.  The Korean prosecution requested, in the matter, a three-year jail sentence for the defendant.  The defendant, a former U.S. senior NCO and, now, U.S. government official working with the 8th Army was found not guilty by a three-judge panel.

Last week, we also, had a guilty verdict overthrown in an appeals court for a senior NCO.

We are proud to be one of the only law firms, in Korea, to obtain multiple non-guilty verdicts for the men and woman proudly serving the American and the Korean people.
