22 year old Vietnamese student jailed for taking upskirt videos-26 May 2015

< 1 min read
Reported in the “The Straits Times” 25/05/2015

The accused was arrested on September 16 2014 for taking two videos of a Peruvian Woman at a Pasir Panjang post office. The victim felt a piece of plastic brushing against her leg as she was writing the address on her parcel.

As she turned around, she caught the accused with a phone in his hand. She seized it from him and called the police.

The man faces two other counts of similar offences at the same place, between the end of November and early December last year.

Our defence counsel, urged the judge to consider the fact that the accused had an internship with a reputable company and would be starting an exchange programme on a Ministry of Education grant soon. We further stated in his our mitigation that the accused was remorseful and that this would be his last brush with the law. We were successful in receiving a more lenient sentence for our client. The accused was sentenced to a 3-week jail term. The maximum penalty that the accused could have faced was a jail term of up to a year, a fine, or both.
