Accident involving 70year old man and the pillion rider

Recommended Posts

I was watching the Channel U news a moment ago.

 

The editor of Sin Ming paper who caused the death of a 24 year old maid and injured a 70 year old rider was previously sentenced to 18 months' jail when the first sentence was passed.

 

She appealed and managed to reduce the 18 months' jail to 1 day.

 

Why the initial sentence can be changed so drastically?

Corrupted. If the 70 year old with the maid caused the death of the editor, and they appeal on the 18 mths jail, the result will be 18 years. Law has its price too, how much you are willing to pay and WHO you are.

Is she the one who's caught talking on mobile while driving, rushing to spa treatment?

 

It's damn disappointing to see someone who commit such act can be let go so easily.....

 

She got some sort of backing?

I read it here and in the news:

It's worse than u think... The jail sentence reduction was apparently accompanied with total $12k fine. Okay, then later turned out that some "sentencing error" (this is quoted from the news article) had occurred - one of the charges apparently does not allow for a fine, i.e. only jail sentence prescribed. So they had to strike off a $10k fine, and she got lucky - now the court feels it unfair to re-increase the jail sentence because it was one of those ... "honest mistake (?)" - for lack of a better term.

 

So there u have it... REDUCED fines to $2k, but sentence remained at 1 day :wacko:

 

Her lawyer claims the $10k will be donated to a charity, anyway.

and the joke of the day is that "who" who decided to correct the "wrong" actually doesn't know one of the charge doesn't allow what kind of sentence, gosh.... what level of creditability that who has in the first place or does he know what case is that in the first place??......

 

umm..... it's like for maid abuse case, then the final verdict is capital punishment but later being told by the lawyer that for a maid abuse case, no such thing as capital sentence..... only jail term and fine ...... [laugh]
