Jaycee, 32, was arrested in August, 2014, during a Beijing drug bust and could have faced up to three years in prison for the charges. Jaycee plead guilty to providing a place for others to use drugs and was sentenced to six months in jail and ordered to pay a $320 fine.
Jaycee, who is also a struggling actor, was repentant at trial, and reportedly promised the judge he would never break the law again, saying, “After I return to society, I won’t offend again, because I would disappoint my family and friends once again.”
After Jaycee’s arrest, Chan wrote a blog post apologizing for his son’s actions: “I should also take some of this responsibility because as his dad, I didn’t teach him well. Therefore, on behalf of Jaycee and myself, I extend our deepest apologies to everyone for the negative impact this has caused on society. Thank you.”
Chan has not yet released a comment on his son’s sentencing. Chan is currently gearing up for the release of his next film, Dragon Blade.
