Former actress Saya Takagi was sentenced Thursday to a year in prison, suspended for three years, for possessing marijuana at her home on Ishigaki Island in Okinawa Prefecture.

While Takagi, 53, pleaded not guilty during her trial at the Naha District Court, prosecutors said she was in possession of the drug on Oct. 25, 2016. They sought a one-year prison term without suspension.
