The Liberian player was accused of displaying a fake car registration plate (BLK 17) on a BMW 325i at a parking lot in front of Restoran Alfa Maju, Jalan Puteri 1/6, Bandar Puteri, Puchong at 4am on May 5.
He was charged under Section 108(3)(f) of the Road Transport Act 198, which carries a maximum sentence of five years’ jail or fine or both, however, the Liberian footballer pleaded guilty to the offense.
The 31-year-old, who was unrepresented, asked the court for a lenient sentence.
“I have three children and I promise not to do it again,” he said.
DPP Abu Arsalnaa Zainal Abidin however, asked the court to mete out a heavy punishment, saying car-cloning was on the rise.
According to the statement of facts, a team of policemen was carrying an operation at a restaurant in Puchong and spotted the BMW 325i.
A check in the Road Transport Department’s system found that the registration number was fake and that the chassis number did not exist.
