A SERIAL molester was sentenced to 11 weeks in jail by a district court for outraging the modesty of a 12-year-old girl.
Student Phua Sze Son, 22, boarded a public bus on Sept 21 last year and sat next to his victim, who was in a school T-shirt and shorts and seated by the window.
Palm facing downwards, he slid his left hand under his victim’s thigh and repeatedly wriggled his fingers against her shorts.
The girl got uncomfortable and decided to leave but had to use her bag to force her way out of the seat after Phua, who was blocking her path, would not give way.
District Judge Shawn Ho said that Phua’s 12-year-old victim had been traumatised by the incident and was in tears when she rushed home and alerted her mother to what had happened. He also noted the victim’s age and that this was the second time Phua had molested a girl aged below 14.
Phua had been convicted of four molestation offences since 2006. — The Straits Times/ Asia News Network
