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, according to the Orange County District Attorney.
Oh’s Facebook friends are a Who’s Who of Orange County Republicans, including Deborah Pauly, Todd Spitzer, and Don Wagner. He has a few Democratic pals too, including Huntington Beach Council Member Joe Shaw and State Senator Lou Correa.
Oh gave a donation of $2,400 to the National Republican Congressional Committee in 2010.
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.
Oh wrote on his campaign website that “As a successful business owner with more than 20 years of management experience, I have demonstrated the ability to make good decisions and lead by example.”
