Molesting Phuket taxi driver gets suspended sentence
The Phuket News

PHUKET: The black taxi driver arrested after subjecting a teenage Chinese tourist to a five-hour ordeal during which he repeatedly molested her, was sentenced to 13 months in prison today, suspended because it was his first conviction.

The judge initially sentenced Paitoon Kruain to 26 months in jail and a fine of B21,000, but both were halved because he had pleaded guilty.

The judge then decided to suspend the sentence because the offences – abduction, molestation and driving under the influence of alcohol and methamphetamine, were all first convictions.

The 19-year-old Chinese tourist gave evidence in Paitoon's trail weeks ago, before returning to China.

It's interesting how many of us today think that China could be the one to put Thailand back to order.

I also hope that they would take drastic measures which would wake up this dysfunctional system where money and personal power can beat every legal obstacles.

So what do you have to do as a first offense to loose your liberty ?
