Teen blogger Amos Yee Pang Sang was on Monday (Jun 6) been sentenced to four weeks’ jail and the sentence has been backdated to 2 June 2015.
He was found guilty of two charges, the first for making offensive or wounding remarks against Christianity and the second for circulating obscene imagery.
Yee has been remanded at the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) for the past two weeks to assess his suitability for a mandatory treatment order, after a doctor suspected that Yee may have autism-spectrum disorder.
Last night, Yee’s lawyer confirmed that his client has “not been eating well, perhaps loss of appetite or no appetite, understandably so and hence his blood sugar went down,” he said.
Yee had previously rejected the option of probation and a term in the Reformative Training Centre as a sentence, sticking to his original plea for a jail term.
