KUALA LUMPUR: A young man who offered to have sex with another man for RM50 was stunned when the prospect turned out to be a policeman.
The incident occurred when plainclothes officers were patrolling Lorong Haji Taib 3 here and saw several youths loitering by the roadside at around 6.30pm on Tuesday.
One of them, 20-year-old Raizi Toran, called out to officer Mohammad Rahimy Abd Rahim: “Hei bang, marilah, lima puluh ringgit saja. Ikut saya la (Hey brother, come, RM50 only. Follow me).”
Mohammad Rahimy identified himself as a policeman and arrested Raizi on the spot.
Yesterday, a magistrate’s court sentenced Raizi to four months’ jail for offering services as a prostitute and two months’ jail for failure to produce his identity card after the youth admitted to committing the offences.
However, he needs to only serve four months after magistrate Ashraf Rezal Abdul Manan ordered Raizi’s sentences to run concurrently, effective from the date of his arrest.
Asked by the magistrate during mitigation if three years’ prison would be fair, Raizi cupped his mouth and gasped loudly.
Ashraf Rezal said he faced a dilemma due to the accused’s age.
“On one hand, a long prison term would have a detrimental effect to a young offender,” he said.
“However, an incapacitative punishment is suitable deterrent against such crimes,” said Ashraf Rezal.
“Thus, I will use the middle route and give a shorter prison term,” he added.
The prosecution was represented by Chief Insp Nom Phot Prackdit.
