Retiree pleads guilty to sexual assault of teen

BUTTERWORTH: A 65-year-old retired gardener has pleaded guilty in the Sessions Court here to sexually assaulting his 17-year-old stepdaughter.

The man admitted to the charge of committing sexual intercourse with the girl – an offence as both were not married to each other – at a house in Taman Desa Ara, Tasek Gelugor, at about 11am on June


The charge under Section 376B(1) of the Penal Code for incest carries a maximum 30-year jail term and whipping. No verdict was delivered before judge Noor Aini Yusof pending the victim’s medical report. DPP Roslina Idris prosecuted the case.

At a separate Sessions Court, the man claimed trial to molesting his 11-year-old daughter with sexual intentions in the house at about 4.30pm on March 18.

The charge under Section 14(a) of the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017 carries up to 20 years’ jail if convicted.

JG Kaameni, who prosecuted the case, asked that the accused be denied bail as he and the victim were living in the same house.

Judge Norhayati Mohamad Yunus agreed and ordered that bail be denied. Both cases are set for mention on Aug 11.
