Tourist pleads guilty to prostitution, jailed 6 weeks

24 June 2024


The hearing was held at the Eastern Court

A Filipina tourist married to a foreigner was jailed for six weeks today after pleading guilty at Eastern Court to prostitution and doing such a business, in breach of her permission to stay as a visitor.

“I plead guilty and sorry, your honor,” said Sheryl J.U., 39 years old, as she sobbed through the proceedings on the two charges filed against her by HK Police -- soliciting for an immoral purpose and breach of condition of stay.

Principal Magistrate Don So accepted her plea and promptly sentenced her to six weeks’ imprisonment, to run at the same time.

Before she was taken away by officers to serve her sentence, Sheryl asked for a chance to speak to her husband, who was in the court room.


However, Magistrate So advised the husband to ask the police which prison they were taking her, so he can visit her there.

Sheryl was arrested last June 21 after she offered sex for $2,000 to a man, who happened to be a police officer, at the corner of Luard and Lockhart Roads in Wanchai.

She was charged with violating Section 147(1)(a) of the Crimes Ordinance, which provides for a punishment of a fine at level 3 ($10,000) and imprisonment for up to six months.

In addition, she was charged with establishing a prostitution business in a room in Ming Hotel on Lockhart Road in Wanchai, which breached her condition of stay as a visitor allowed to remain in Hong Kong until July 3.
