A married marine police sergeant was sentenced to three months' jail yesterday for molesting a rookie constable on an undercover anti-smuggling operation in Sai Kung, for which he had ordered his subordinate to pose with him as a couple. Sergeant Wong Yiu-wa, 44, was released on bail pending appeal on an indecent assault charge, to which he had pleaded not guilty in Kwun Tong Court. Wong is a 25-year veteran of the force.
