Man gets 2 months’ jail for offering sex services to cop

KUALA LUMPUR: Offering sex services to a policeman landed a man in jail for two months.

Magistrate Wong Chai Sia ordered the man, A Sri Vinod Lal, to serve the jail sentence from the day of his arrest on Aug 20.

The 31-year-old was charged with offering sex services for RM50 to a policeman in front of a hotel on Jalan Raja Laut here at 8.15pm on Aug 20, just before he was nabbed.

At the same court, an Indonesian woman, Linda, 36, was fined RM2,000 in default two months, after she pleaded guilty to a charge of offering sex services to another policeman for RM230 at a hotel on Jalan Yew, Pudu, at 1.50pm on Aug 14.

In mitigation, the woman, represented by lawyer Nik Nur Athira Mat Zaidan, requested for a lighter punishment as she is a single mother and has three children and parents to support in Indonesia.

The accused in both cases were charged under Section 372 (B) of the Penal Code which carries imprisonment for a term not exceeding one year, or with fine, or with both, upon conviction.
