Singapore Teen Convicted of Stealing Neighbor's WiFi


A Singapore teenager has pleaded guilty to tapping into a neighbor’s wireless Internet network and will be sentenced next month, a newspaper reported Wednesday.

In mitigation Tuesday, the lawyer for 17-year-old Garyl Tan Jia Luo said his client was “deeply remorseful” for his actions, the Straits Times reported.

Court officials could not be immediately reached for comment.

Tan’s offense carries a penalty of up to three years in jail and a maximum fine of more than $6,000. He is the first person in Singapore to be charged with the offense.
