Lovi Poe seen crying in Hong Kong over Ronald Singson's jail sentence of 1 year and 6 months

Lovi Poe was reportedly seen crying after hearing Cong. Ronald Singson's sentence of 18 months jail term.

Lovi Poe went there in Hong Kong to show support for her boyfriend Ronald Singson who was arrested in July for possession of 6.67-gram cocaine and 2 tablets Nitrazepam and now, he has been sentenced to 1.5 years in jail.

GMA 7 has just reported that Lovi wasn't even allowed to come near Singson right after the sentence was read.

Philippine Daily Inquirer reports Ronald Singson faces a jail term of 1 year and 4 months for the cocaine plus 2 months for the Nitrazepam, for a total of 18 months.

Cong. Singson could have faced a heavier sentence but it was reduced after he pleaded guilty and the Hong Kong judge believed the cocaine was for his personal use only.

I've read in a Reuters report via The Star in Malaysia the other reasons why Singson's sentenced was reduced to 18 months from supposedly 36 months.

The HK judge reportedly said that it was due to Singson's political career, being a businessman and having a clean criminal record.

And of course, his background, you know, coming from a well-known political family.

So, does it mean, if you're rich and powerful, you're sentence can be reduced?

That's why I don't like the judge's reasoning as to why Singson got a lighter sentence.

And since, he already served almost 8 months in jail, Singson's jail time will now just be more than 10 months. ABS-CBN News anchor Karen Davila said on Twitter, "Source in HK tells me Cong. Ronald Singson's sentence is 1 yr and 6 mos, but reduced to 10 mos 10 days jail time."
