Rapper MC Mong's infamous legal battle over accusations of intentional draft dodging finally came to a close on April 11th. The verdict? MC Mong has been sentenced to a suspended jail term of 6 months, probation for one year, and 120 hours of community service. The court acknowledged that there was a delay in his military enlistment, however, they were unable to determine whether the star was guilty for extracting teeth for the purpose of avoiding his military draft. Investigators came forward to state, "We were not convinced that he didn't know of his delayed enlistment, and we are certain of our conclusions and subsequent charges." So would MC Mong have to serve with the military later in the future? A representative of the Office of Military Manpower Administration stated, "Although he has been convicted for interfering with a government official in the execution of his duties, he was cleared on accusations of violating military service laws. Therefore, the Military Manpower Administration cannot take further action. He must be convicted of charges for violating the military service act in order to be elligible for a draft retest. The exempt status is still valid for this case." Regardless of the verdict, MC Mong has suffered greatly physically and emotionally since the trial began and an uncertain future awaits him in the entertainment scene. Source: TV Report via Nate
