Depressed female law graduate gets probation only for theft while her boyfriend was jailed

Posted by temasektimes on June 15, 2012

A 23 year old female law graduate Ong Shi Han was sentenced to 15 month’s probation for stealing drinks and rice from a condominium storage room.

The court learnt that she stole eight boxes of Pokka drinks, a sack of rice and some electrical items – a two-pin power plug and an extension socket – from a storage room in Blue Horizon condominum in West Coast Crescent in November 2011 together with her boyfriend Jeremy Kuek Beng Kiat.

However, Jeremy, a 23 year old an aeronautical engineering student, was sentenced to a day’s jail and fined S$3,000 in May.

As Ong Shi Han was determined to be suffering from depression at the time of the offence, she was ordered by the district judge to attend psychiatric treatment.

Ong’s parents, who were both in court, signed a S$6,000 bond to ensure her good behaviour.

    Even if woman commits murder, they can always walk free by feigning “depression” with the help of corrupt psychiatrist. Elite guys, FTs would get the same treatment.

    Damn you if you are a poor man. In SG they are no law, and Singaporean man are the target of oppression.

    The normal sentence for shop-lifting is a day’s jail i.e. stay at the Court lock-up till end of the working day. The fine reflects the severity of the theft. The boy-friend is plain stupid. Now he has a criminal record and has to wait perhaps five years to apply for deleting that record.

    He doesn’t need to clear the record, he’s well rich and is known to live above the law. I knew him in primary school and he is really a good guy at heart, with just a blatant disregard for the law.
