TOKYO — After spending months in a Japanese jail, a 21-year-old Marine lance corporal convicted of drunkenly assaulting three people in Tokyo is free on a suspended sentence.

Kahsai Tyree Hill, assigned to 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment at Camp Lejeune, N.C., was found guilty Wednesday in Tokyo District Court of three counts of bodily injury. The judge gave him a suspended sentence of three years in prison with hard labor.

Hill won’t have to serve his prison time unless he commits another crime in Japan within the next five years.

Hill had been in jail for 110 days awaiting trial and sentencing, the judge said. Speaking through an interpreter Wednesday evening, Hill’s defense attorney told Stars and Stripes that Hill would be immediately released.
