A funeral director in his 40s who secretly stole funeral expenses deposited by the residents and used them as gambling funds became an ex-convict.
Chuncheon District Court Criminal 3rd Criminal Judge Lee Eun-sang sentenced 47-year-old A, who was charged with business embezzlement토토사이트, to 10 months in prison and 2 years probation.
Mr. A, who was working as a funeral director at a funeral home in Inje-gun, was tried for 9 times over 3 weeks from April 8, 2020 on charges of embezzling a total of 55.43 million won in funeral expenses from the residents.
As a result of the investigation, Mr. A did not deposit the money collected from the residents for the funeral event, such as goods and meals, into the funeral home management account, but spent it as gambling funds on private Internet gambling sites.
Judge Lee pointed out, “The number of crimes is not small and the amount of damage is considerable.”
However, he stated the reason for the suspension of execution, saying, “The defendant’s father paid about 60 million won, so the damage appears to have been substantially recovered, and the sentence was determined by combining the fact that there was no criminal record.”
