SEOUL, June 10 (Yonhap) -- Jung Il-hoon (27), a former member of the idol boy group BTOB, who was put on trial for using marijuana several times, was sentenced to prison in the first trial and arrested in court.

The Seoul Central District Court sentenced Jung, who was indicted on charges of violating the Narcotic Control Act, to two years in prison and ordered a fine of 133 million won. Jung, who was on trial without detention, was arrested in court on the same day after being sentenced to prison.

Jung was put on trial in April 2021 on charges of investing 133 million for marijuana and inhaling it 161 times between 2016 and 2019. The prosecution demanded a four-year prison sentence and a fine of 133 million won for Jung, who pleaded for leniency after admitting the charges.

Meanwhile, according to BTOB's agency Cube Entertainment, Jung withdrew from the group last December when the drug allegations were exposed to the public.
