Buena Park Councilman Charged with Six Felony Counts

BUENA PARK (Calif.) FNP – The District Attorney of Orange County charged Buena Park Councilman Sangjin Miller Oh, 48, with perjury because he allegedly failed to provide accurate information to government agencies.

Susan Kang Schroeder, the Chief of Staff for the DA’s office, said that Oh provided fraudulent information to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) with the intention of avoiding child support payments. Oh allegedly provided a false name and hid his assets to circumvent paying his ex-wife.

Authorities allege that Oh began to commit perjury in September 2004 and continued to do so through July of 2009. Prosecutors said the councilman used the fake license to register cars in another name and failed to mention that his license was suspended when he applied for a new one. Allegedly he did this to hide assets and avoid child support.

The DA says they have evidence that the councilman applied for a license under the name of Robert Oh and failed to disclose that he applied for license under a different name. This is a violation of the law.

If convicted, Oh faces six years and four months in state prison. The councilman could not be reached for comment.
