Prosecutor: Buena Park Councilman Committed Perjury To Avoid Child Support

SANTA ANA (AP) — A Southern California councilman has been charged with lying on state documents to avoid paying child support.

Orange County prosecutors say Buena Park Councilman Sangjin Miller Oh committed perjury six times on Department of Motor Vehicle applications for a driver’s license using a different name.

The district attorney’s office says in a news release that Oh was trying to avoid child support payments to his ex-wife by hiding his assets under a false name.

Prosecutors say they want Oh arrested and held on $25,000 when he appears in court to enter a plea. An arraignment date hasn’t been set.

Oh did not immediately respond to an early Thursday email request for comment.
