Man Claimed Himself Gay To Avoid Molest Charge
This is the most creative excuse I have ever heard/read.
A FORMER model agency owner charged with molesting a woman spent the last two days flip-flopping on what his sexual leaning was at the time of the alleged offence. At times, even he seemed unsure of it.
Mark Chow Yee Sze, 30, had told police in January 2007, after he allegedly molested the woman, that he was gay at the time.
Yesterday, the former television actor and host confirmed the contents of his Jan 15, 2007, statement to the police, which was that he had ‘no feeling for females because I am gay and not interested (in) women’.
But this flew in the face of what he told the court on Monday. Quizzed by Deputy Public Prosecutor Adrian Loo on whether he was homosexual, he had then said he did not know.
He explained that his father suspected he was gay, and insisted that he get himself a girlfriend. ‘That is why I said I don’t know. I was facing family pressure,’ he said in Mandarin.
He admitted to an on-off relationship with a Ms Cherie Mae Ng from 2005 to 2007. By January 2007, he said, they had broken up, but she was there for him as his bailor when he was charged with the offence the following year.
