Lee Cheng Yan, 36, the Maserati driver who on Nov 17, 2017, dragged a police officer who hung onto the side of his Maserati for 124m at speeds of up to 84km/h, has missed his sentencing for a third time due to medical leave again.
The case saw the police officer signal Mr Lee to stop for not wearing his seat belt. Mr Lee, who at the time was banned from driving, refused and the police officer held onto his door and was dragged along the road. The officer sustained injuries which later led to him downgrading his medical status.
This is the third time Mr Lee has missed his sentencing using medical leave as an excuse, obtaining his MC from the same private clinic, Goh Medical Clinic, on all occasions.
Mr Lee was convicted in December 2019 of all 10 charges against him, including voluntarily causing grievous hurt to a public servant, failing to stop after an accident and obstructing justice.
The penalties for voluntarily causing grievous hurt to deter a public servant from his duty are a maximum jail term of 15 years and a fine or caning.
