SINGAPORE: A serial prank caller who repeatedly made nuisance calls to the police – despite being jailed for the same offence previously – was sentenced to three years' jail on Thursday (Sep 6).

 

Gurcharan Singh, a 61-year-old cleaner, usually made the 999 calls after drinking alcohol, the court heard.

 

The latest incidents occurred over two days in June this year, with Singh making two calls on the first day and 15 on the second.

 

On Jun 10, Singh called the police using a public phone at a void deck in Chai Chee. As the operator could not hear what he was saying, he asked him to call back with another phone.

 

Singh then told the operator: "You are stupid." When asked what emergency he was calling about, Singh spoke incoherently about immigration and corruption.

 

He also said: "I put one dynamite to the immigration house." He knew this message to be false, Deputy Public Prosecutor Daphne Lim said.

and this type of hit and run no jail at all.

 

 

No jail for driver who hit cyclist and didn't stop 

20101119.112327_treebranchdriver.jpg

SHE was fined $800 for failing to help a cyclist she had hit.

The prosecution appealed to the High Court, asking for the driver, Cleopatra Wong Yuin Ping, 30, to be given a jail term instead.

But Judge of Appeal Chao Hick Tin dismissed the appeal.

Wong had earlier said that when she heard the impact, she thought it was a rotten tree branch that had fallen on the car.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Christopher Ong said yesterday that imprisonment "was the norm" for those who had failed to render assistance after an accident.

DPP Ong had argued that her fine for that charge was inadequate and that the District Judge should have given her a jail term.

He pointed out that in previous similar cases, the sentences have been generally a few weeks' imprisonment.

She thought cyclist was a tree branch

In addition, Wong's claim about how she thought the impact had been caused by a falling tree branch was merely her "bare assertions".

But Justice Chao noted that when the case was heard in the District Court, the prosecutor at that time had not raised any objections to Wong's mitigation plea or challenged her assertions.

Quit teaching

Wong was a teacher at the time of the accident but she has since quit.

She was driving her father's Lexus ES300 when she rammed into a cyclist along Holland Road around 5.15am on Oct 19, 2008.

The impact caused the cyclist, Mr Muhammad Asri Aris, 19, to be flung onto the windscreen before landing on the left side of the road. The windscreen was cracked as a result.

Wong heard a bang and looked in that direction. But thinking that it was a rotten tree branch that had fallen, she did not stop and continued driving home.

She was also unaware that the victim's bicycle was stuck in the undercarriage of the car.

The bicycle was dragged for about 2km, until the junction of Holland Road and Leedon Road, before it was dislodged.

Mr Muhammad Asri was warded for two days with a fractured left shoulder, a cut on his forehead and multiple abrasions.

He was also given medical leave for about a month.

Wong had earlier gone to Zouk to look for her cousin, who had not returned home. Her cousin was staying with her family then.

In her mitigation, Wong said that she heard some sounds at the rear but because the sound-proofing of the Lexus was so good, she thought that the sounds were caused by the tree branch.

In sentencing Wong in August, the District Judge had said it was possible that the shadows from the canopy of trees would have had an impact on Wong's line of sight, resulting in her mistaken assumption about the "object" that struck her windscreen.

Wong had said that she was travelling at 60kmh at the time.

Dents

When Wong reached her home at Ming Teck Park, off Sixth Avenue, she noticed some dents and scratches on the left front bumper.

But she felt no urgency to report the incident and went to bed.

The police went to her home and towed the car away before 8am the same day.

Wong's brother called them later and was told by an officer to ask the driver to contact him. Wong then called the officer immediately.

Wong pleaded guilty to one charge each of inconsiderate driving, failing to stop after an accident and failing to render assistance after an accident. The prosecution appealed only the last charge.

She was fined a total of $2,400 - $800 for each charge - and disqualified from driving for a year.

Yesterday, Wong, who was accompanied by five friends and relatives, was visibly relieved and all smiles after the appeal was thrown out. She declined to be interviewed.

Wong had resigned after six years of teaching to look after her son, who was born in December last year.

For failing to render assistance after an accident, she could have been jailed 12 months or fined $

 

3,000.

i am more surprised the judge accepted her reasoning that her lexus soundproofing is so fantastic that she didnt notice.

 

i wonder if the fact she stay sixth avenue and drives a lexus play a part in the decision....

 

really SMH

He called when he's drunk, that meant he must be a compulsive alcoholic.

Not a wise move to restrict oneself on something he was so dependent on.

Extended stay he gets.😅
