Sanjana Jon Fined USD 1,000 for Contempt of Court
Sanjana Jon, sister of Indian- American fashion designer Anand Jon who has been jailed for 59 years for sexually assaulting aspiring models, has been fined USD 1,000 and sentenced to either 5-day imprisonment or 120- hour community service for contacting a juror during his trial.

The sentence was announced by Judge David Wesley of Los Angeles Superior Court as part of the contempt of court proceedings against her along with juror Alvin Dymally for having spoken to each other in violation of the court order.

Announcing the sentence yesterday, Judge Wesley slapped a fine of USD 1,000 on Sanjana, the elder sister of Anand Jon, and gave her the option of either five days in jail or 120 hours of community service.

According to her attorney, Dana Cole, Sanjana opted for community service. Early this week, Dymally too received the same sentence.

Wesley wanted Sanjana to perform 120 hours' service with Caltrans, California Department of Transportation, while Cole claimed a medical condition made that impossible, L A Weekly reported.

"Wesley agreed to work with Cole and (Sanjana Jon) Alexander to find 'an acceptable alternative' and scheduled them to return to his court next Tuesday with a doctor's letter confirming Alexander's inability to work with Caltrans," the weekly said.

After the hearing, Sanjana embraced her mother and the two women wept.
