Amy Tangles with the Law Again


In November 2012, Korean-American actress Amy (real name Lee Yoon Ji) received an eight month prison sentence and two years of probation for abusing Propofol. Now she is in trouble with the law again. On June 29, the Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office announced that Lee had been charged with 15 counts of violating the Act of the Control of Narcotics for using Zolpidem.

According to the prosecution, from November to December 2013 Lee received a total of 85 tablets of Zolpidem from one Ms. Kwon on four separate occasions. Lee and Kwon met at the West Seoul Probation Office, where both have been undergoing mandatory education on drug use. The Prosecutor’s Office explained that even though she is still on probation for her offense in 2012, she was indicted without being jailed due to the fact that she received a legitimate prescription for Zolpidem last June and has tested negative for Propofol use during her probationary period.
