A wheelchair man living in Po Tin Village, Tuen Mun, was sentenced to probation for attacking his grievance neighbor with a hammer. The next day, he drenched his neighbor with scum, causing third-degree burns to 18% of his body.
The wheelchair man pleaded guilty to one count of splashing corrosive liquid with intent to cause grievous bodily harm. The court revealed that the victim had complained that the defendant had left the wheelchair in the corridor.
When sentencing today (13th), the judge reprimanded the defendant for being vicious. The seriousness of his crime far exceeded the grievances between him and the victim. After committing the crime, he even laughed at the other party. It can be seen that he has no remorse and believes that he failed to control his temper and posed a threat to society. The defendant was sentenced to 12 years in prison. Because the defendant violated the probation order, he was ordered to serve 1 month of the original sentence, with a total sentence of 12 years and 1 month.

Failure to control temper poses a threat to society
The judge continued that the defendant failed to control his temper and posed a threat to society.
