Samsung Group heir Lee Jae-Yong was sentenced to a 70 million won ($60,055) fine on Tuesday for illegally using propofol.

Propofol is used to put you to sleep and keep you asleep during general anesthesia for surgery or other medical procedures. It is used in adults as well as children 2 months and older.

The Seoul Central District Court also ordered an additional forfeiture of 17 million won as it convicted Lee of violations of the Narcotics Control Act.

The fine and the forfeiture are the same as what prosecutors had demanded Lee, reports Yonhap News Agency.
