Chinese newspaper editor to serve a day's jail

"A Shin Min Daily News editor won an appeal to reduce her sentence at the High Court on Friday.

Michelle Lim, who was found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving, will now serve one day in jail, down from the original sentence of 18 months.

In addition, she was fined S$2,000 and banned from driving for ten years.

Lim was sentenced last July after being convicted of beating the red light on Christmas Eve in 2006. Her car collided with a motorcycle, killing the pillion rider.

Banned for driving 10 years?! It's like a life time penalty.
