Actress Amelia “Amy” Jacobs, a former Miss Teen Thailand, was acquitted on Tuesday of trafficking in drugs, but her boyfriend was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

 

The judge at Min Buri Provincial Court found 29-year-old Amelia guilty of illicit drug use and handed her a three-month suspended jail term. She was also ordered into a rehabilitation programme.

 

Amelia had been held in remand prison for the 11 months since her arrest.

 

She and her boyfriend, pub manager Poonyawat Hirantecha, 41, were arrested last September 19 at a house in Bangkok’s Sai Mai district where police seized 70 grams of crystal methamphetamine, 16 ecstasy pills and a weigh scale.

 

Poonyawat confessed to trafficking.

 

Amelia was seen taking drugs as police stormed in.

Boyfriend gets 25 year sentence AFTER confessing???

 

Whatever happened to confess and get your sentence cut in half???

Mate, it is a gram a year normally up to 50 years. Half of 50 is 25, so that was the sentence for 70 grams or two and a half ounces, WITH the 50% reduction. Crazy, huh?

I wonder if any judge could be less an imbecile than the rest of his colleagues and decide a less harsh sentence, or if in Thailand a judge cannot (or is not smart enough to) decide that 50 grams of any drug doesn't deserve 25 years in jail ?

It's a real question, as we never hear about any special more realistic decision, is it even possible in the land of idiots ?
