“He was sentenced to eight and a half years for the delivery, three years on the possession. Three of the years will be suspended if he completes the RSAT program at DOC. So with his time in, if he does that, he’ll be out about two and a half years,” Lemons said.

Song has already served about three years pre-trial incarceration and was given credit for time served.

In court today, Song addressed the court candidly expressing his dismay over media representation of him during the course of the case.

He says the media has painted him as a monster but according to Superior Court Judge Vernon Perez media reports were not taken into consideration in the imposition of his sentence.

Song told the court that he intends to appeal the conviction and sentence. Lemons confirmed that he would be filling the appeal.
