- Husband jailed for beating wife to death
- Two more jailed for sex with minor
- Ex-assistant pastor jailed for sex abuse
UNAWARE that her husband had lost his job, Tang Shifang slapped him for spending his time playing computer games.
This angered him and the fight that followed left her with multiple injuries including collapsed lungs and a ruptured kidney. Tang eventually died from her injuries.
Her husband Lee Show Fui, 33, was yesterday sentenced to five years in jail, after pleading guilty to culpable homicide not amounting to murder. Justice Woo Bih Li considered Tang's provocation, and an offer the schizophrenic man made to call an ambulance when he realised his wife was badly injured.
The couple have a history of violent quarrels and are both trained in martial arts. Their fight on Aug 31, 2011, began with Lee oversleeping. — The Straits Times/Asia News Network
TWO more men were jailed 10 weeks each for engaging in commercial sex with a 17-year-old Chinese national who was forced by her pimp to work as a prostitute.
This brings the total number of men sentenced so far to 15. Ng Keng Siong, 56, a project manager, admitted paying S$80 (RM205) for the sexual services of the minor at Budget One Hotel in Geylang on May 20. He had another charge committed the next day taken into consideration.
In the same court, assistant manager Ong Boon Hock, 61, admitted paying S$60 (RM153) for the teen's services at a lodging house in Lorong 21 Geylang between May 19 and 23. He, too, had a second similar charge considered.
According to both men, they had asked the minor for her age. She told them she was 19 and 20 respectively. But neither of them took any steps to verify this. — The Straits Times/Asia News Network
A FORMER assistant pastor was sentenced to 16 months' jail for making a 15-year-old girl from his church perform oral sex on him twice.
Both cannot be identified because of a gag order to protect the identification of the victim but the court heard that in one of those incidents, the offence was committed on church grounds and the other at a park in 2011.
The 46-year-old man, who is married with three children of his own, also faced a third charge of committing an obscene act that was considered during his sentencing.
The accused was in charge of the church's youth group, and had organised programmes and activities for its younger members.
He and the victim were apparently in a relationship after having expressed their love for each other.
The pair had started chatting via text messaging. Their conversations became progressively more intimate and sexual in nature, said Deputy Public Prosecutor Ng Yiwen, adding that the accused would talk to the victim about sex and intimated that he wanted to have sex with her.
Some time between end-September and early October of 2011, he made her perform oral sex on him at a secluded part of a park. The second time she did it was in October when she went to help him with some chores in church.
It was only after she left for a school trip in Beijing later that month that she realised that what the accused had done was wrong. She then sent a text message to her mother who then flew to Beijing with her husband to escort her back.
A police report was later filed on Nov 22 that year. — The Straits Times/Asia News Network
