Published on: Friday, February 09, 2018

Kota Kinabalu: A 29-year-old man was sentenced to 14 months' jail, Thursday, for having a stolen motorcycle.

Faizul Madjuhari admitted before Magistrate Stephanie Sherron Abbie to having Mohd Farhan Firdaus Jeffrey's motorcycle on Feb 1, this year.

He was arrested at the compound of the Cendrawasih police station in Lahad Datu at 12.55pm.

Chief Inspector Lim Swee Beng, prosecuting, told the court that Mohd Farhan had on Nov 14, last year, lodged a police report that his motorcycle parked in front of the Affin Bank here was stolen.

Counsel Christine Linus, representing Faizul, applied for leniency saying he was remorseful and that no one was harmed.

However, Lim urged the court to impose a deterrent sentence on the grounds that the case caused the motorcycle owner to suffer financial loss.

The offence under Section 411 of the Penal Code carries a jail term of up to five years or fine or both on conviction.

In another case, a salon assistant claimed trial to two counts of cheating and dishonestly concealing properties.

Jesper Daniel, 27, is accused of cheating one Mohd Amir Jawil by making him believe that a Perodua MyVi car belonged to him (Jesper), causing Mohd Amir to give him RM4,950 as deposit to purchase the car.

The offence was allegedly committed between 11am on Oct 12, 2016 and 10am on Oct 15 the same year at the Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN) in UMS.

On the second count, Jesper allegedly concealed RM580 belonging to Amran Aldense in his (Jesper) bank account at 7am on Sept 8, 2016 at the BSN, here.

Magistrate Afiq Agoes set Feb 22 for case management and ordered Jesper be remanded further.

Meanwhile, seven people were jailed 12 months each after they admitted taking drugs.

Omar Nasir, Mohamad Alrasul, Jul Kira, Aljaji Baluan, Mohd Satal Oamnan, Acai Ismail and Abdul Jalil Sakara were found positive for syabu at separate locations here, last year.

Omar, Jul, Aljaji, Mohd Satal and Acai, all Filipinos, were ordered referred to the Immigration Department after serving sentence while local Mohamad and Abdul Jalil were ordered to be placed under police supervision for two years thereafter.

Inspector Rasydan Jasni also prosecuted. - Jo Ann Mool
