20 Tahun Penjara? Cukup Ke? tak PATUT DOWH!
GEORGE TOWN: A kindergarten director was sentenced to 20 years' jail by the Sessions Court yesterday for raping a 4-year-old girl.
Judge Sitarun Nisa Abdul Aziz also ordered Ewe Peng Lip, 48, to be given 10 strokes of the rotan for the offence.
Ewe was alleged to have raped the girl, a pupil of Tadika Mutiara Kecil Kindergarten, at No. 1, Cangkat Dumbar, Bukit Dumbar, here, between 8.10am and noon sometime between January and April in 2008.
Ewe's counsel, Datuk C.V. Prabhakaran, who appeared with Moke Yee Yow, pleaded for a light sentence as his client was not involved in any wrongdoing since 2008.
