Jackie Chan's son jailed on drugs charge

Jackie Chan's son Jaycee was jailed for six months on Friday (09Jan15) on a drugs charge.

Jaycee Chan, 32, pleaded guilty to "sheltering others to take drugs", a charge he was hit with after police found marijuana in his home in August (14).


In a statement at the Eastern District Court Beijing, China, Chan said, "I have violated the law and I should be punished... After I return to the society, I will definitely not make a mistake again because I have made my family and friends disappointed for one more time. I have gotten the punished I deserve, but it doesn't mean I have been forgiven. I hope I can use my actions in the future to get the forgiveness and to pass positive energy."


A judge sentenced Chan to six months in prison and ordered him to pay a fine of $322 .


His actor father was not present in court.
