KUANTAN: A food stall helper claimed trial at the Sessions Court here today for sodomising an underage male youth at an eatery along Jalan Beserah here last month.
Noreddy Mohd. Nasir, 29, was charged with committing carnal intercourse against the order of nature by inserting his (the accused) penis into the 15-year-old victim’s anus.
The bachelor allegedly committed the offence at an eatery along Jalan Beserah about 11am on Sept 30.
He was charged under Section 377(A) of the Penal Code, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years’ jail and whipping.
Deputy Public Prosector Farahah Mohd Nazari requested the court for bail to be set at RM15,000. Noreddy, who was unrepresented, pleaded for a lower amount and said he only earned RM900 a month from his job at the food stall and had to take care of his mother.
Judge Siti Aminah fixed bail at RM10,000 with one surety and ordered Noreddy not to disturb the victim.
She fixed Nov 14 for case mention.
Meanwhile, a satay seller pleaded not guilty to two charges of sexual assault and terrorising an underage girl.
For the first charge, Zulkhairul Kople, 28, was charged with kissing the 12-year-old victim on her cheeks and faced a second charge of intimidating the victim through threats.
He allegedly committed both offences at the Pulau Serai Integrated housing community about 4pm on Sept 10.
Under Section 14 (d) of the Sexual Offences Against Children Act 2017, Zulkhairul faces a jail term of not more than 20 years and whipping while in the second charge under Section 506 of the Penal Code, carries a maximum of two years in jail or fine, or both, upon conviction.
