34-year-old Wade James Burridge is appealing an 11-month jail and caning sentence he received in court on Wednesday, after he was found guilty of molesting two different women on the same night.

The defendant, a managing director of a horse racing company, struck over two years ago on 8 Oct 2015. He assailed his first victim, a 46-year-old events consultant, at Mogambo Bar in Canton Street around 11pm when he stood behind her, put his hand up her skirt and touched her private parts.

The woman turned around and hit the Australian before informing the bar manager who contacted the police.

Burridge slipped away to another bar, The Mad Men Attic Bar, where he molested another woman, a 33-year-old physiotherapist, about one and a half hours after his first attack, at 12.37am.

Similar to his first attack, Burridge slipped his hands inside his second victim’s shorts and squeezed her buttocks.

His second victim also reported the matter to the police and Burridge was apprehended shortly thereafter.

Burridge could have been sentenced to a maximum of 2 years in jail, a fine, and/or caning for outrage of modesty.

Presently out on a S$40,000 bail, the dissatisfied defendant is seeking to appeal his sentence.
