Youth gets 31 years, 30 strokes of cane for burglaries
KUALA LUMPUR: A 24-year-old youth was today sentenced to 31 years and six months jail and 30 strokes of the cane by the Ampang Magistrates Court here, after he pleaded guilty to 16 house burglaries in Ampang between 2011 and early this year.
Magistrate Ayuni Izzaty Sulaiman sentenced Norman Shah Jamal, 24, from Taman Mulia Jaya, Ampang to two years jail and two strokes of the cane for the first 15 burglaries around Pandan Indah and Ampang Jaya between March 11 2011 and March 24 this year.
Among the items he stole were gold bangles and earrings, cash, cameras, mobile phones, watches, laptops and title deeds worth RM174,200 belonging to 15 individuals.
The 16th house Norman broke into was in Kampung Tasek Permai, Ampang on Nov 26 last year, for which he received 18 months jail.
The sentences were ordered to run consecutively effective today.
However, Norman, who was unrepresented, pleaded for the sentences to run concurrently saying he had been in a desperate situation after his parents' divorce and furthermore he was set to get married in August.
But deputy public prosecutors Goh Ai Rene and S.Purnima applied for a stiffer sentence on the grounds that he was charged for the same offence since 2008 and being desperate was not a concrete reason to commit them.
They submitted that furthermore, the offences had been committed after detailed observation and planning while the owners were out.
"This shows that the accused is a habitual offender who has no remorse whatsoever and does not show desperation," said Purnima. -- BERNAMA

Youth gets 10 years, 10 strokes for causing woman grievous hurt
SIBU: A 21-year-old man was sentenced to 10 years' jail and ordered to be given 10 strokes of the rotan by the Sessions Court here after he was found guilty of causing grievous hurt to a 55-year-old woman last October in Kapit.
Justice Indra Ayud in passing the sentence under Section 326 of the Penal Code said he took into consideration the man's guilty plea, public interest and the severity of the injury sustained by the victim.
Indra ordered the sentence to commence from yesterday.
According to the brief facts of the case, at about 6pm on Oct 25 last year, the victim Lalang Ubok was riding pillion on the accused's motorcycle along Jalan Mujong Kapit.
Lalang had wanted to look for her friend, Banggau Angkop, but the accused, Tommy Lingga, wanted to catch frogs in the area instead.
A quarrel broke out when Lalang insisted on looking for Banggau. In the heat of the moment, the accused pulled out a knife and slash Lalang with it.
The brief facts of the case said it was the accused who sent the victim to the hospital for treatment.
Dr Nickson Tai Oon Khean, who treated the victim, confirmed in the police report that she suffered wound at the right hand, multiple scalp wounds with open skull fracture and a wound at the left wrist.
