London, Nov 10 (ANI): A migrant worker was fined a meagre 20 pounds after he sexually assaulted a 13-year-old.
On the other hand, the girl's father who caught the man in a supermarket got a 50 pounds parking ticket the day after the trial.
Rulanas Kochanauskas, 31, pounced on the youngster as she walked home across a footpath and groped her breasts.
The teenager ran home in tears and alerted her 40-year-old dad, who tracked down Kochanauskas to a shopping centre, got him in a head lock and called cops.
The migrant, thought to be Lithuanian, initially denied the assault but later admitted a charge of indecently touching a girl aged 13 in a sexual way without her consent.
The court in Ludlow, Shrops even hired an interpreter, but magistrates fined him 20 pounds and ordered him to pay his victim 80 pounds compensation.
The girl's dad was furious when next day he was given a 50 pounds ticket for parking "inappropriately" at a supermarket.
"It's a disgrace. I thought the least he'd get was a suspended sentence. It cost the court hundreds of pounds for an interpreter," The Sun quoted the dad as saying. (ANI)
