Junnosuke Taguchi, a former member of Japanese male idol group KAT-TUN, was given a suspended prison term Monday for possession of marijuana.

The Tokyo District Court sentenced the 33-year-old Taguchi to six months in prison, suspended for two years. His partner, former actress Rena Komine, 39, was given the same suspended term for the same offense.

The two had admitted to the possession charges in their trials. Prosecutors had sought six months in jail for both, while the defense had called for a suspended sentence.
