SG man jailed 13 weeks for uploading on Facebook a photo of his wife having sex with her supervisor
A 27-year-old man who posted a photo on Facebook of his wife having sex with her work supervisor, calling the supervisor a “homewrecker” in his caption, was sentenced to 13 weeks’ jail on Friday (Dec 3).
The Singaporean man, who cannot be named due to a gag order to protect his wife’s identity, pleaded guilty earlier to one count each of theft and distributing an intimate image. Another two charges of being in possession of and distributing intimate images were taken into consideration in the sentencing.
The court heard that the man, who moved out of his wife’s home in December 2019, suspected her of infidelity. He visited her on Feb 6 last year, snatched her phone from her hands and ran off with it, said Deputy Public Prosecutor Foong Ke Hui.He went through the contents in her phone as he wanted to confirm his hunch that she was having an affair.
He found videos of her fully naked as well as a photo of her having sex with her supervisor, and saved these on his phone.He returned his wife’s phone to her without telling her he had saved the intimate contents.On Feb 12, he posted the picture of his wife having sex with her supervisor at 9am on Facebook publicly, with the name and job of the supervisor in the caption. He also attached pictures of the supervisor and his text conversations with his wife. headtopics.com
“The accused claimed that he did so because he did not want others to share the same fate as him. He described the (supervisor) as a homewrecker and warned people to be aware of him,” said DPP Foong, adding that the man had reason to believe this act would cause his wife humiliation.
Soon, friends of his wife and her supervisor alerted them to the Facebook post, which had gone viral, racking up some 3,000 likes, 2,000 shares and 1,000 comments by 4pm.Overwhelmed by the attention, the man removed the post, but later uploaded it again as he wanted everyone to know what the supervisor did. This time, his wife’s face was blurred but her naked body and the supervisor’s face remained fully visible.
He removed the post one day later, said DPP Foong, who sought a sentence of 18 months’ jail.District Judge Kessler Soh deferred the start of his imprisonment to allow the prosecution to file an appeal.Seeking a five- to seven-week sentence, defence lawyer Wee Hong Shern urged the judge to consider that the accused’s actions were an outcome of a “soured relationship” and that the man acted out of anger.
“The (supervisor) had sought to crown his achievement by recording his affair. These are the people the prosecution is protecting – the (supervisor) who has such disregard for morality,” said Wee.He said many of the cases referred to in court were more severe. Some cases which involved intimate videos being uploaded on pornography websites were given lighter sentences of several months – “poles apart” from the 18 months sought in the current case. headtopics.com
On the 13-week jail sentence, Judge Soh said the current case was less egregious than others stated in court and that the man was driven by despair over the infidelity of his wife. – The Straits Times (Singapore)/Asia News NetworkArticle type: freeUser access status:Read more: The Star »

His wife committed adultery. And he goes to jail? Wife should be punished instead, like shaming her instead of jailing or stoning her to death. This is absurd.🤔🤔🤔 Kalau hubby dia memang innocent, tak ada scandal lain sebelum bini ada scandal lain, asal tak sebar kat whatapps group lol 🤣🤣
