A teenager stole CDs from a shop hours after a magistrate sentenced him to community service for the same crime. Eastern magistrate Peter Line sentenced Hue Siu-wing, 19, to three weeks in jail for his disrespect for the law.


Hue, unemployed, was caught stealing two CDs from HMV, Causeway Bay, on February 20. He did not have any money to pay for the goods, worth $337. That morning, he had been ordered by a magistrate to serve 80 hours of community service for stealing CDs.
