PETALING JAYA: A 38-year-old night market trader has been sentenced by a magistrate's court here to seven months in jail for sending a lewd photo to a R.AGE journalist posing as an underage girl.

Ahmad Azwan Abdul Aziz was found guilty of sending the photo, of a penis, through WeChat at 3.37pm on March 10, last year.
