Police Arrest North Phoenix Karate Instructor For Child Sex Abuse

On September 4, Phoenix police arrested a karate instructor at the Maru Taekwondo Martial Arts School near Cave Creek Road and Tatum Boulevard. 25-year-old Yong Jin Jung has been accused of sexually abusing two students on five separate occasions over the past two years.

According to court paperwork, both victims were under 10 years old and the most recent assault happened in late August. Jung has been accused of touching the two female students inappropriately and exposing himself to one of them.

Jung has been charged with sexual conduct with a minor and was given a $100,000 cash bond. He made no statement to police upon his arrest.

Legal Recourse For Child Sex Abuse Victims and Their Families

Attorney Kevin Biniazin helps families affected by sexual violence get the support and justice they deserve. He has offered to share some insight into the legal options available to child sex abuse victims and their families:

As a parent, we all want to provide our children with enriching experiences that help them grow. After-school activities like sports and martial arts provide a great opportunity for kids to learn new skills and make new friends. When we sign our kids up for these programs, we trust that the instructors and other adults involved with the program are honorable people. But unfortunately, many positions that involve working with kids attract sexual predators.

When an instructor, coach, or another person in a position of trust exploits this trust in order to sexually abuse a child, it’s important for the child’s family to be aware of their legal rights. Making sure the perpetrator is arrested is always the top priority, but it’s also important to hold accountable the organizations and businesses whose negligence failed to prevent the abuse. For example, a martial arts facility that failed to run a background check before hiring a sexual predator would be considered negligent which can result in a martial arts sexual abuse lawsuit.

If your child has been sexually abused and your family is looking for justice, you can learn more about your legal options by speaking with an experienced sexual abuse victims lawyer.
