SINGAPORE : A former IT engineer was fined S$8,000 on Tuesday for molesting a doctor in her clinic on June 8 last year.
A district court found 30-year-old Pham Thai Ha guilty of outraging the doctor's modesty after a seven-day trial.
The Singapore permanent resident had held her shoulders and tried to kiss her during a consultation session in her clinic.
The Vietnamese man had also taken the doctor's hand and pulled her towards him.
The doctor had earlier told the court that Pham had gone to the clinic to seek treatment for a rash on his finger.
She added that he later told her that there was a rash on his buttocks and undressed so that she could examine the affected area.
The doctor testified that Pham was seen to be sexually aroused shortly after she examined him and he then proceeded to molest her.
Pham could have been jailed up to two years and fined or caned for committing the offence.
