Ilhoon faces 2-year prison sentence in appeals trial for marijuana case

AKP STAFF

Ilhoon is facing a 2-year prison sentence in the appeals trial for his marijuana case.

On November 18, prosecutors sought a 2-year prison sentence and a fine of 126.6 million Won ($107,200.01 USD) against the former BTOB member. Ilhoon previously underwent trial on the suspicion of buying and smoking 826 grams of marijuana with about 130 million Won on 161 occasions between July of 2016 and January of 2019 with 7 other people. In his first trial, Ilhoon was sentenced to 2 years in prison and fined 133 million Won ($112,618.34 USD), which he appealed.

Ilhoon said during his appeals trial, "I'd like to take the opportunity to tell you I'm deeply reflecting on my wrongs. I'm seriously regretting my foolish actions and feel ashamed of myself. The time I spent in the detention center was a time of deep reflection on the big and small misdeeds I've done in my life. Meetings are restricted due to COVID-19, so I exchanged letters with my family and deeply felt their boundless love. I truly miss the ordinary everyday life I used to enjoy. I've fully understood how drugs can ruin my life and the terrible damage it has on society. I firmly promise my acquaintances and honorable judge that from now on, I'll never betray the hearts of my beloved family and those who trust me, and I'll live a proper and honest life. I really was in the wrong. I apologize."

He's reportedly sent 87 official letters of apology since the appeals trial started. 

Stay tuned for updates on Ilhoon's ongoing trial.
