07 August 2020

By Vir B. Lumicao

The magistrate imposed a non-jail sentence to allow defendant to continue his counseling sessions

A 54-year-old Filipino designer was fined $2,000 and handed a one-month suspended jail sentence today, Aug 7, in Eastern Court after he admitted exposing his genitals to a local woman in Wanchai one evening in January.

S.F. looked meek as he was sentenced by Magistrate Bina Chainrai after he pleaded guilty to the offense.

The defendant was accompanied to the court by his wife and two teenage daughters.

He was charged with indecency in public on Mar 30, two and a half months after he was arrested for exposing his private part to the woman, identified only as X.

The prosecution said the defendant, who works as a designer, was walking on the sidewalk outside Joint Publishing HK at 1A O’Brien Road at 7:15pm on Jan 16 when he suddenly stopped and stuck out his genitals in front of X for 6-8 seconds.

At the time, X was waiting for her boyfriend.

The woman got scared and screamed, attracting the attention of two male bystanders, one identified as a chief customs officer and a site worker, who quickly nabbed the defendant.

Police were called to the scene and they arrested the defendant. He was later released on police bail.

The prosecution said the defendant had two previous convictions, one similar to his present offense.

The lawyer representing S.F. said his client had admitted having a problem and was undergoing counseling by a psychiatrist. The lawyer begged for a lenient sentence.

Chainrai said she was imposing a non-custodial sentence so the defendant could continue his counseling treatment.
