SINGAPORE: The man at the centre of a spitting incident video which went viral is expected to plead guilty next week.
This after his application for legal aid was unsuccessful, as he did not qualify.
With no lawyer to represent him, Juraimi Kamaludin indicated he will plead guilty to the charges when the case is mentioned again in a week's time.
47-year-old Juraimi was charged in October 2013 with being a public nuisance due to his aggressive behaviour at Woodlands Bus Interchange on October 22 at about 9.30pm.
He allegedly spat in the faces of two women, 41-year-old Teoh Lay Peng and 34-year-old Lee Kuan Eng.
He was said to have spat in Ms Lee's face twice that night.
The bespectacled man allegedly also pushed Ms Teoh out of the bus, and this charge carries a maximum jail term of six months and a S$2,500 fine.
Juraimi faces another charge of disorderly behaviour in September this year, at about 8am at a void deck at Bukit Batok Street 21.
He faces six charges in total.
If convicted of disorderly behaviour, Juraimi could be jailed up to a month and fined S$1,000.
For using criminal force by spitting, he is looking at a maximum of three months' jail and S$1,500 fine for each count.
The maximum penalty for being a public nuisance by behaving aggressively is a fine of up to S$1,000.
