HONG KONG – If not properly handled, gambling could destroy your financial stability in life. Just like this Filipino male helper who managed to steal thousands of dollars just to sustain his addiction.
A.I Laberos was sentenced to 24 months jail time. The 50-year old domestic helper pleaded guilty into stealing $365,050 amount of cash and some jewelries from employer. He then spent all the money gambling.
After pleading guilty, District Court Judge Timothy Casewell provided a one-third discount and lowered his jail time into 16 months since his custody last August 2016.
Laberos went to Hong Kong last 2011, with an aim of supporting his family in the Philippines.
