Slight less than 1 day after being fined $2000 for setting fire to his neighbor’s clothes, unemployed 22 year-old Phui Jun Ming stalked and molested a 14 year-old-girl in a lift on 13 June last year.
On Tuesday, Phui was sentenced to nine months jail and one stroke of the cane after pleading guilty to outrage of modesty. Phui was diagnosed with having “poor impulse control”.
Phui also pleaded guilty to touching a 28 year-old woman’s leg from a window along a common corridor. A further charge of molesting a 31 year-old woman in a lift on 25 May 2014 was also taken into account.
On 12 June last year, Phui was fined $2,000 after pleading guilty to mischief along the corridor of Block 502, Jelapang Road on 22 Dec 2013. Phui was then a waiter at karaoke chain K-Box and had used his lighter to burn clothes hanging on a pole to “destress”. He was also ordered to pay $150 as compensation to his neighbors for the damage caused, including other items from another charge.
Earlier in 2006, Phui was convicted of another charge of outrage of modesty and placed on 24 months probation.
He will serve his latest sentence on 24 Feb after the judge granted his request to begin serving his time after Chinese New Year. He is out on $15,000 bail.
