Violent Taxi Driver in Bali Gets 6 Months Jail
A panel of judges in the Denpasar District Court has punished a Bali taxi driver, Budiyanto, to six months in jail for a physical assault on a Russian tourist, Ponomarenko Oksana.
The driver struck the Russian in the face following an early morning argument on the preferred route back to Nusa Dua that occurred on July 11, 2014. According to the State News Agency Antara, the six-month sentence was less than the eight months sought by State prosecutors.
Both State Prosecutors and the Defendant told the court they would receive the judgment of the court and not lodge an appeal.
