Buena Park Councilman Charged With Perjury
Posted by Chris Emami on May 30, 2012
In a disappointing news release that just went out from the office of District Attorney Tony Rackauckas, it has been announced that Buena Park Councilman Miller Oh has been charged with six felony counts of perjury. This stems as a result of him allegedly using fraudulent information on DMV documents to get out of paying for child support. OC Political readers should know that we understand he is innocent until proven guilty, but this certainly does not look good.
Here is the press release:
BUENA PARK CITY COUNCIL MEMBER CHARGED WITH DMV DOCUMENT PERJURY TO AVOID CHILD SUPPORT PAYMENTS
SANTA ANA – A Buena Park City Council Member has been charged with repeatedly committing perjury on California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) documents to avoid paying child support to his ex-wife. Sangjin Miller Oh, 48, is charged with six felony counts of perjury by declaration and faces a maximum sentence of six years and four months in state prison if convicted. Oh will be arraigned on the charges at a later date to be determined.
Between Sept. 23, 2004, and July 20, 2009, Oh is accused of committing perjury on six occasions by signing official DMV documents using fraudulent information. The defendant is accused of committing 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 is accused of applying for a driver’s license under the name Robert Oh and fraudulently failing to disclose that he had previously applied for a license under a different name, as required by law. On another occasion, Oh is accused of fraudulently failing to disclose that his license had previously been suspended. On four other occasions, Oh is accused of using 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.
