A GUY TRAVELLED ALL THE WAY TO HONG KONG TO DO PICKPOCKETING, TO STAY IN JAIL FOR 30 MONTHS

A Filipino tourist  was sentenced to a total of 30 months in jail by a District Court judge. He pleaded guilty in December to charges of attempted theft and breach of a deportation order.  Judge Bina Chainrai handed down the sentence for  Jolito Mania, 52,  after delaying it for more than one and a half months to wait for the result of the case of his alleged partner and co-defendant, Marcelo Ortega Jr.  Ortega, who was cleared of the charges, has remained in Hong Kong and is reportedly planning to seek compensation from the government for the eight months that he was detained while the case was pending in court.  The defense lawyer asked for a lighter sentence, saying Mania was in deep regret on what he did, no property was lost and that the suspect has three of his six children still going to school and that he wanted to be with them soon.   Chainrai is more likely to give what the defense lawyer was asking saying that  Mania committed the same offense in 1991 for which he was convicted  and that he  changed his identity to breach his deportation order.  “The sentences will neither be concurrent nor consecutive, but will overlap,” Chainrai said.         Mania was sentenced to 12 months in jail for the first charge of attempted theft,. For the second he got a 27-month jail sentence to take effect after the third month of the first sentence,  a total of 30 months imprisonment sentence.   Mania and Ortega were arrested on April 25 last year after allegedly trying to pick the wallet of a certain Mr Wong, an MTR passenger who they followed from the Jordan station to Mongkok. Mania waited since Dec 9 for his sentence as Chainrai said she wanted to wait for the outcome of the trial of his alleged partner, Ortega, before sentencing the first defendant.  Mr. Wong noticed the attempt while Mania had his right hand in Wong’s backpack and called the police leading to the arrest of the two suspects were  in Cheung Sha Wan Station.   Mania pleaded guilty to both charges laid against him at the start of the hearing on Dec 9, while Ortega pleaded otherwise to the  attempted theft charge.   Mania was issued a deportation order on Mar 2, 1992 after serving a sentence for an earlier theft conviction, according to the prosecution.   Ortega was acquitted of the charge immediately the following day.  About a month later, Ortega approached the Consulate’s assistance to nationals section to apply for a legal aid  with a thick wad of forms to fill out .

A Filipino tourist  was sentenced to a total of 30 months in jail by a District Court judge. He pleaded guilty in December to charges of attempted theft and breach of a deportation order.

Judge Bina Chainrai handed down the sentence for  Jolito Mania, 52,  after delaying it for more than one and a half months to wait for the result of the case of his alleged partner and co-defendant, Marcelo Ortega Jr.

Ortega, who was cleared of the charges, has remained in Hong Kong and is reportedly planning to seek compensation from the government for the eight months that he was detained while the case was pending in court.

The defense lawyer asked for a lighter sentence, saying Mania was in deep regret on what he did, no property was lost and that the suspect has three of his six children still going to school and that he wanted to be with them soon.

 Chainrai is more likely to give what the defense lawyer was asking saying that  Mania committed the same offense in 1991 for which he was convicted  and that he  changed his identity to breach his deportation order.

“The sentences will neither be concurrent nor consecutive, but will overlap,” Chainrai said.
