Amos Yee pleads guilty to 2 charges

Teenage blogger Amos Yee, who has denied six charges of wounding religious feelings, has pleaded guilty to failing to turn up at a police station on two occasions.

On the third day of his trial yesterday, Yee, 17, admitted that he failed to show up at Jurong Police Division at 9am on Dec 14 last year, despite being served with a notice by a police officer to do so.

He also admitted to failing to turn up at the same police station at 9am on May 10, despite a magistrate's order to do so.

Principal District Judge Ong Hian Sun will sentence Yee for the two contempt of lawful authority charges at a later date, after his trial on the remaining six charges.

The maximum penalty for each charge is one month's jail and a $1,500 fine.
