Hey you guys, it's your girl Stevieq and I just wanted to share with you guys the immense joy I feel right now. As you guys may or may not know but I am a huge T.O.P supporter and after his mental break and marijuana charge I've avoided all news BIGBANG. Now in all honesty I didn't mean to especially with GD and Taeyang solo comebacks but I just couldn't get myself to do it. And as a V.I.P I apologise. But I was just informed today about T.O.P suspension by my cousin and I decided to look into and even though I am still worried how T.O.P will continue to handle this, I am happy his sentence was lenient.
This article is on Soompi:
On July 20 at 1:50 p.m. KST, the final trial for T.O.P’s marijuana case took place. The court stated, “The defendant has acknowledged all of the charges made against him and has been found guilty. Drug-related crimes not only hurt the individual’s health but it can also have major negative effects on society as a whole, so there is no choice but to give a severe punishment. “However, we have taken into consideration that the defendant is sincerely self-reflecting, and that he does not have any previous criminal offenses.” Therefore, the court announced that T.O.P will be receiving a 10-months prison sentence suspended for two years, as well as a fee of 12,000 won (approximately $10.7). This means that T.O.P will be spending two years in probation, but will have to spend 10 months in prison if he violates the condition of the suspension during those two years. Meanwhile, T.O.P is currently in a position where he has to finish his mandatory military service. If he had received a prison sentence that exceeded 18 months, he would have been forcibly retired from his current military service and given a special status. However, because his suspended prison sentence is less than 18 months, his local police agency, where he was serving as a conscripted police officer, must now determine whether or not it is proper for him to continue in his current position or in a new one to serve out his remaining 520 days of mandatory military service.
I know many of you have mixed feelings about marijuana being illegal but he still needs to abide by the laws of his country and I hope he doesn't stress himself out too much anymore.
Now the military needs to finalize what they are gonna do with the rest of T.O.P mandatory service. I'm honestly not sure what would be the best for him; going into public service or to continue his current position.
