(2) The lower court’s sentence against Defendant A on the grounds that it is too unjustifiable and unreasonable.
A. (1) The part of the prosecutor's assertion of mistake of facts against Defendant A was found not guilty of part of the facts charged in the instant case for the following reasons.
① 피고인 A이 M으로부터 2013. 3.경 2억 원을 수수하였다는 부분에 관하여, 원심은 M의 진술이 유일한 증거인데, ㉠ 2013. 5. 17. 이전의 통화기록이 없고, ㉡ 2013. 5. 31.경 M과 처음 통화를 하였다는 피고인 A의 진술이 더 설득력 있으며, ㉢ 2억 원의 출처를 확인할 수 있는 금융자료가 없고, 2014. 12. 18. M은 L의 자금을 횡령하였다는 공소사실로 1심에서 징역 9년을 선고받았는데, 피고인에게 책임을 전가할 가능성도 충분하며, ㉣ V, W의 진술도 피고인 A의 주장에 부합한다는 이유를 들어 M 진술의 신빙성을 배척하였다.
