A convicted drug user and street-level dealer will not need to serve any additional time behind bars as Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola says he isn’t likely to re-offend.
Jonathan Bae was sentenced in court today to three years incarceration all of which was suspended with credit for time served.
Bae took a deal with the government in two cases and pleaded guilty to illegal drug possession. The plea dismissed the charge of possession with the intent to deliver a scheduled two controlled substance among other charges.
Bae is now a free man. But as part of his sentence, he will need to perform 150 hours of community service and pay a fine of $5,000.
He has been placed on probation and will have to submit to random drug testing. A further proceeding has been set for Dec. 31.
