Nice one, Lynx. Never a truer word spoken than in jest, as they say.

user_001 wrote:I am an international student studying in Singapore, My case was in this early september. I met a girl in front of my room. She appoached me and ask me something, she could not access her room so I told a joke that she can go in my room and wait for her roomate. But she refused. Then she told me that she need to go to toilet. I suggested her going to Men toilet, she agreed, in the toilet men, I touched her three times. The first time I touched her, let say unintended, I saw no reaction from her so I tried to touch her the second time with the reason that there was a piece of toilet paper sticking on her skirt. She was ashamed and went back to the toilet to check, the when she went out, I tried to touch her the third time, this time, she got angry and went away. After that, 2 days later, she came back with police, they took me to police station, interviewed me and asked me to come back next Monday 1st October. I want to ask that, for my case, what is the worst scenario, will the police interview me again next Monday, If the girl agree to drop the case, what should I do? Will this take a long period of time for my situation to be completed, because this problem affects my studying alot.

I am now just 19 years old, have no criminal record, my birthday is just 3 days before the case happend, I am now 19 years and 15 days old. Is that an advantage for me?


Looks like a lame troll attempt to me as well.

So, you told a woman to go to the Men's bathroom, followed her in and touched her?

IMO you deserve to be caught and punished, are you after some kind of sympathy? As said above, stop touching strangers and this won't happen, 19 or not, it's not on, did your mum never teach you this?

Actually this has just reminded me about the Darwin Awards which even if they are not true make me laugh, must go check the Internet and look at the latest :-)

and some of my friend also tell me to pray for a warning from police, may this happen?


I'd actually forgotten that the age of majority here is 21!

You're not likely to get just a warning from the police - they've invested too much time already. The only consideration maybe your age.

Were there any witnesses? Did you touch an improper part of the girls body or just a normal part (i.e. shoulder). Unfortunately - the offense outrage of modesty only need the woman to be upset by your behavior - nothing else. However; if you can show that you did not have intent (doubtful), or that her reaction is disproportionate to the offense; then perhaps you can find some mitigation.

FYI the penal code defines your offense as below. IT looks as though caning is not likely (if this was the code you've been charged under).
Quote:
Word or gesture intended to insult the modesty of a woman – Whoever, intending to insult the modesty of any woman, utters any word, makes any sound or gesture, or exhibits any object, intending that such word or sound shall be heard, or that such gesture or object shall be seen by such woman, or intrudes upon the privacy of such woman, shall be punished with imprisonment of up to one year, or with a fine, or with both.

There are some good reports on lawnet dot com dot sg of similar cases to yours.

Why would you try to touch her not once but thrice? (One attempt could have been brushed off as an accident or something, but thrice?).

And where all did you try to touch her?
