KUALA LUMPUR – A single mother pleaded not guilty at the Ampang Magistrate’s Court here today for reckless driving and injuring two participants during the Standard Chartered KL Marathon on Sunday.
Cham Shan Jer, 25, an online trader, was charged with driving in a reckless or dangerous manner hitting Lee Wei Jack, 44, and Faizul Shahrul Mohd Salleh, 44, on the Middle ring Road 2 (MRR2) heading towards Gombak, at 6am on Sept 29.
The charge under Section 42 (1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 provides for a maximum jail term of five years and a maximum fine of RM15,000 upon conviction.
Chan also pleaded not guilty to the second charge of possession of 14.5 grammes of Methamphetamine under Section 12 (2) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952, which provides for a maximum jail term of five years and whipping, upon conviction.
She was charged with committing the offence at the Pandan Indah Police Station, Jalan Pandan Ilmu at 4.30am on Sept 30, 2019.
Earlier deputy public prosecutor Nur Intan Syariah Zakaria, requested the court to fix bail at RM10,000 for the first charge and RM8,000 for the second charge.
However, Chan’s counsel T.L. Chen, asked the court to impose a lower bail as his client was a single mother with a four-year-old daughter and this was her first offence.
Mohamad Firdaus allowed a bail of RM8,000 for the first charge and RM6,000 for the second charge and set Nov 18 for mention of the case.
