KOTA KINABALU - The 26-year-old has a twisted sexual habit. He stole women's undergarments to masturbate in them.
For his sick fetish, Jukni Osman (pic) was sentenced to two weeks in jail by a magistrate's court here.
Jukni, who is jobless, pleaded guilty to stealing five pairs of undergarments from a 19-year-old college student before senior assistant registrar Dzul Elmy Yunus.
Jukni had admitted to stealing the items worth RM50 (S$19.50) from a house at Plaza Juta Likas at 4.42am on Sept 17.
The indictment falls under Section 22A (1) of the Minor Offences Ordinance, which carries a fine of up to RM100 or a jail term of not more than three months, or both upon conviction.
Describing the offence as creepy, prosecution officer Insp Lim Swee Beng said the case might be classified as a minor offence but its implication was serious.
"We (the prosecution) are afraid that imposing a light sentence such as a RM100 fine, might not deter the accused from committing this offence again.
"This is a creepy offence which could turn into something more serious such as a sexual crime," Insp Lim said.
He added that two bras and a PVC pipe was seized from Jukni when he was arrested.
Jukni, when asked how long he had been doing this, said: "Baru saja (just started)."
The accused also told the court that he did it suka-suka saja (just for fun) and asked to be fined for the offence.
