39 year old Patrick Cormak Cusack was at a walkway between nightspots Shanghai Dolly and The Beer Market in Clarke Quay around 5.30am on May 1 when he allegedly touched the groin of a 29-year-old woman.
He then used abusive language on a police officer, Sergeant Nazri Ahmad who was called to the scene to assist the distraught lady.
Speaking to the court, Cusack’s lawyer, Mr S. Radhakrishnan said he intends to have the case compounded with a payment to the victim.
If convicted, Cusack faces a jail term of two years, a fine and caning for outraging the modesty of a woman.
For using abusive words against the police officer, Cusack can be fined up to $5,000 and jailed for a year.
