Criminal Conviction Leads to New Buena Park Mayor

Buena Park’s four remaining city council members will select a new mayor Tuesday following the recent conviction of Mayor Sangjin Miller Oh.

A jury found Oh guilty of five counts of perjury for falsifying Department of Motor Vehicles documents to avoid making child-support payments.

The Orange County Register reported that Oh, 50, faces a maximum of six years, four months in state prison when he is sentenced Aug. 22.

City Manager Jim Vanderpool told the Register all of the crimes occurred before Oh became a city council member in 2010 and had nothing to do with city business. State law requires his removal from office following the conviction.

The meeting begins Tuesday at 5 p.m. Click here to view the agenda.
