BUENA PARK CITY COUNCIL MEMBER CONVICTED OF PERJURY ON DMV DOCUMENTS TO AVOID CHILD SUPPORT PAYMENTS

WESTMINSTER – A Buena Park city council member was convicted today of repeatedly committing perjury on California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) documents to avoid paying child support to his ex-wife. Sangjin Miller Oh, 50, was found guilty by a jury of five felony counts of perjury by declaration and faces a maximum sentence of six years and four months in state prison at his sentencing Aug. 22, 2014, in Department W-8, West Justice Center, Westminster.

 

Between Sept. 23, 2004, and July 20, 2009, Oh committed perjury on five occasions by signing official DMV documents using fraudulent information. The defendant committed this crime with the intention of avoiding child support payments to his ex-wife by hiding his assets under his false name.

 

On one occasion, Oh applied for a driver’s license under the name Robert Oh and fraudulently failed to disclose that he had previously applied for a license under a different name, as required by law. On another occasion, Oh fraudulently failed to disclose that his license had previously been suspended. On four other occasions, Oh used his fraudulently obtained license to register vehicles.

 

This case was investigated by the DMV, Orange County District Attorney’s Office, and Social Security Administration Office of the Inspector General.

 

Senior Deputy District Attorney John Christl of the Special Prosecutions Unit is prosecuting this case.
