Rapper Don Mills was recently sentenced to two years probation for gaining a ton of weight with the purpose of dodging enlistment into active duty for the military.
According to a legal professional, Suwon District Court sentenced Don Mills to one year in prison which is suspended for two years for intentionally gaining weight before his military service physical examination in May 2018. This means that Don Mills will be in probation for two years, and will have to serve one year in prison if he violates the condition of the suspension during those two years. Speaking about the sentence, the court said, “He damaged his body or tried to deceive with the purpose of being exempt from military service. We took into consideration that he was reflecting on his wrongdoings, he’s a first-time offender, and that he’s committed to serving in the military.”
Vismajor Company responded by essentially saying that he had actually just tried to intentionally force deferral and not avoidance of service.
“Don Mills appealed to differentiate between deferring enlistment and simply trying to avoid military service, but as it was true that he tried to defer enlistment intentionally, he admitted to the charge and received a sentence from the court.”
Doubt that’s gonna matter to the public, honestly.
Anyway, considering that I know him best for shouting “Mills gon do it!” over and over, it’s endlessly amusing to me that he decided to stop using the mantra when it came to active duty military enlistment.
