Nov 13 2009
ANCHORAGE, Alaska— A 27-year-old Anchorage man has been convicted of robbing his mother at gunpoint because she didn't give him money to help pay a $430 parking ticket. The Anchorage district attorney said Friday that Cheng Saelee was also convicted of illegally contacting his mother from jail and trying to get her to drop the charges.
Prosecutor Gustaf Olson said Saelee was arrested in November 2008 after he became angry during an argument with his parents, got a handgun from his room and pointed the weapon at his mother's head.
He was scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 19 and faces up to 12 years in prison.
Olson said Saelee might also be deported to Thailand after he serves his sentence.
The ticket was for abandoning a vehicle.
Saelee requested that his real face not be shown in connection with this article. The above face is a "fake" face, to comply with Saelee's request. Despite the caption this is not a photo of Kim Kardashian. The face is 100% fake.
