KUALA LUMPUR – A woman was today fined RM4,000, in default four months jail by the Magistrate’s Court here, for offering sexual service to a policeman.
Magistrate Zuhair Rosli handed down the sentence on Tang Moy Lan, 51, after she pleaded guilty to soliciting RM100 from Lance Corporal Mohamad Yusoff Abdullah, 56, for the purpose of prostitution.
The offence was committed at the five-foot way of Hari-Hari Department Store, Jalan Petaling, here at 10.40pm, on Oct 17.
She was charged under Section 372 B of the Penal Code which carries a maximum jail term of one year or a fine or both.
Earlier deputy public prosecutor Siti Hajar Mohd Ashif urged the court to impose a deterrent sentence as a lesson to the accused. – BERNAMA
