67-Year-Old Man bags 13 Months Jail term for sexually abusing teen On transit


A unrepentant female molester, 67-year-old Mak Yip Kee was lucky to have received a milder sentenced-13 months imprisonment after he admitted to molesting a 13-year-old female student on an MRT train on January 7, 2016.
The Singaporean retiree, who was also charged with outraging the modesty of a 23-year-old business development executive on the same train was after his arrest (four days later) found to have had a similar conviction 20 years ago
On the said day the student - who was dressed in her school's Physical Education attire - was standing behind Mak when he used his little finger to poke her private parts.
According to The New Paper, Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Winston Man told the district court that Mak was holding onto a safety bar with his right hand and had a mobile phone in his left hand. 
The 13-year-old, who'd just boarded the train at the time, noticed that Mak's little finger on his left hand was also pointing outward.
Shortly after the train departed from the station, Mak poked the front of the girl's thigh. She looked down and saw that his pinky finger was very close to her left thigh. 
Having initially thought that the contact was accidental due to the train's movement, the teen moved away from Mak. To her shock, he then poked at her private parts over her shorts.
Shocked and scared, she did not confront him and moved further away from him instead. Even as she did so, he kept observing her to see where she was going. 
Mak was also charged with molesting a 23-year-old woman, whom he "accidentally" touched as he was getting off the train
 As he alighted from the train, Mak swung his right hand towards a woman who stood near the train doors. 
The student realised that Mak had also touched her when she noticed the woman moving backwards upon contact. She later approached the woman and upon finding out that Mak had also molested the woman, the teen shared her experience and broke down. 
Both women then alighted at the same station and sought help from MRT staff. The police were also notified. 
Mak was arrested four days later. He was later found to have had a similar conviction 20 years ago.
Mak faced up to two years of jail time and/or fined, but escaped caning due to his age.
