It’s official, Jackie Chan’s son Jaycee Chan will be charged over drug offense
After months of awaiting the decision from the Beijing official, they finally officially decided to charge the drug offense of Jackie Chan’s son, Jaycee Chan. A couple of months ago, the 32 years old actor and singer, was arrested in Beijing after testing positive for marijuana, with police videoed and full undeniable evidence on founding 100 grams of the drug at his home. This is the result of a secret operation by the Beijing narcotic to bust down on drug abuse by local and foreign artists.
There is some speculation which indicated that Jackie Chan will use his influence on China politics in order to save his son from prosecution. However the conjunction of heavy penalty on drug trafficking in mainland China, any mercy sympathy will not be given even for a movie star. this is not the only case that involved Hong Kong and Mainland China artists caught with drug substances.
Drug crimes carry harsh penalties in China including death or life imprisonment in serious cases. Hopefully, Jaycee Chan will face minimal penalty on his first-time drug offense.
