A local man known as ‘Simin’ who holds a long list of previous convictions dating as far back as 1999, was sentenced to five years and six months’ jail on Saturday, after he pleaded guilty in the Magistrate’s Court earlier, to yet another series of thefts.
Adi Sukri bin Haji Sulaiman, 47, in this case, committed seven counts of thefts.
Magistrate Nur Eleana binti Dato Seri Paduka Haji Hairol Arni, on handing sentence, expressed her disappointment to the defendant with the fact that the defendant resorted to crime to feed his family rather than earning an honest way for a living.
Prosecutor Nurul Husna Aqilah binti Haji Abidin revealed in court that it was the first instance in this case that led to his arrest.
