KUALA LUMPUR: A race-pit crewman has claimed trial to the attempted rape of a schoolgirl half his age.
Mohd Nor Anifha Nor Arzmi, 26, was charged on Wednesday with attempting to rape the 13-year-old in a storeroom, in the Sri Pangkor flats, on Jalan Sentul Pasar here at 8am on July 9.
Deputy public prosecutor Normadiana Mamat urged the court to use its discretion not to offer bail, as it was a non-bailable offence.
Mohd Nor Anifha, who was unrepresented, faces up to 30 years prison and whipping if convicted under Section 376 of the Penal Code for rape.
Judge Emelia Kaswati Mohamad Khalid agreed not to allow bail, and fixed Sept 25 for next mention for the accused to hire a lawyer.
