A 30-year-old local man was on Thursday handed a six-month jail sentence after pleading guilty to multiple charges of assaulting and hurling threats at his mother and sister over a rancid meal.
Magistrate Nur Eleana binti Dato Seri Paduka Haji Hairol Arni sentenced Sanj bin Awang Shahlan to five months’ jail plus a BND1,000 fine, or to serve an additional month imprisonment in default of payment.
The defendant failed to settle the fine.
DPP Rozaimah Abdul Rahman earlier withdrew the charge of mischief, alleging the defendant to have damaged a bedroom door in the family home.
The defendant was discharged from the allegation not amounting to an acquittal.
