TAIPING: The stepfather of a Form Four student, who gave birth to a stillborn girl in her school last week, has pleaded guilty to two counts of incest.
At a magistrates court here yesterday, the 42-year-old former policeman readily nodded and uttered mengaku (admit) each time a charge was read out to him by the interpreter.
He was said to have had sexual intercourse with the underaged girl at their home in Kuala Kangsar on Feb 10 this year and June last year.
The stepfather, who was unrepresented, faces a maximum 20-year jail term and whipping for each count.
Magistrate Rohaida Ishak, who sat as a Sessions judge, denied the man bail and set April 16 for facts and sentencing.
The prosecution was led by Budiman Lutfi Mohamed.
