A Filipina who took pictures of her employer’s personal documents and sent them to her African male contact is in jail after the man betrayed her to the employer. 
Jocelyn Tupino, a 44-year-old domestic worker, appeared in Kwun Tong Court on Feb 20 where she was originally charged with “obtaining access to a computer with criminal intent”.
The prosecution said that Tupino was ready for plea to an amended charge of  “obtaining access to a computer with a view to a gain."
Magistrate Ernest Lin, summarizing the charge to the defendant, said that on July 13 last year in an unspecified home address, the defendant took photos of personal documents of her employer with her mobile phone and sent them to the male contact.
Then one day recently, the man called Tupino’s employer and informed her that the helper had sent him the photos of the documents.
The employer dismissed the defendant and called the police.
The magistrate adjourned the hearing until Mar 20 for plea-taking.
“Defendant, talk to your lawyer for direction and legal advice on whether to plead guilty or not guilty, and on your general line of defense,” Lin told Tupino.
The magistrate upheld the prosecution’s objection to grant bail to Tupino because of her lack of local ties, but gave her eight days to apply for bail in the Court of First Instance.
Lin, in the meantime, remanded the helper in jail.
