Taking BRIBES, as a jail guard, and now, you’re, behind B-A-R-S! Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
The former wardens of Taichung Penitentiary, Weng in 2013, accepted favors of meals, as well as sex, for him to “take good care of” of the former officer, Lee who was serving for encroachment, and he was asked to bring towels, teas, cigarettes for other inmates as well, the Highest Courts maintained the rulings from the second trial, sentenced Weng to four years six months in prison, stripped him of his government post for two years, case closed.
During his trial, Weng admitted to being treated for seafoods, to drink alcohol, to take the hooke3rs out, but claimed that the cost was pay for temporarily by his friend, that he’d paid them back afterwards, that he’d not received any benefits; and his handing the teas, the towels, the cigarettes, he’d only broken the internal rules of operations, but the judge didn’t believe him.
During September of 2013, Weng was asked by a friend, Huang, to give a case of Changshou Cigarettes to the inmate, Chiao; on December of the same year, he’d taken three kilograms worth of teas to his friend, Chang’s younger brother who was serving time; in June of 2014, with a fellow prison manager, Chen, they’d received the pleas from a friend, Lu, to bring an inmate, Chien, ten towels.
Weng was found that in October of 2013, being treated to seafood by a friend, Huang, then, went to the karaoke bars to drink, and took the ladies out for sex, which Huang paid for in sum; Huang wanted to use these favors, in exchange for Weng’s looking after the former officer who was serving time for encroachment, Lee.
On the first trial, the courts sentenced Weng to seven years in prison for the crimes, stripped him of his post for three years; on the second trial, the sentence changed to four years six months, stripped of his post for two years; and, the other officer, Chen on the first trial, received two years ten months, stripped of his public post for two years, and on the second trial, he received only a year and ten months in prison and stripped of his public post for a year.
And so, you took these “favors”, and for what? JAIL time! That just still showed, how we are all, too easily tempted, and how easily officials of the law can get enticed, to commit the crimes that the inmates they’re placed in charge of had committed too.
