The 18-year-old female student who pleaded guilty in court after she and another student were caught having sex on the streets in Hong Kong was sentenced to one year of probation today.
The woman, Wu Xinyi, was caught having sex with 19-year-old Yang Hao, also a mainland student, near a bus stop on Fat Kong Street outside the Polytechnic University dormitory in Ho Man Tin.
At first, the two pleaded not guilty, but Wu later returned to court to enter a guilty plea. Defense counsel Caesar Lo Chi-lam said Wu had a good background and performed well in her academic studies. Lo explained that what happened with Wu was an isolated incident, and that she was intoxicated at the time, which could have influenced her judgement. Lo added that Wu expressed regret for her actions and offered to apologize to anyone who was affected by the pair’s sexy antics.
According to Hong Kong news reports, Yang had pleaded not guilty, and will be facing another trial on August 13. Five witnesses and two more video recordings of the incident will be summoned.
Sounds like it would’ve been less mortifying if he’d just pleaded guilty.
