He faces a possible sentence of up to six years in jail and a fine of $7,500 on each charge. The Briton left his room at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore hotel on three occasions in September, according to the charge sheets. He was not wearing a mask. He climbed an emergency stairwell and entered a room that his Singaporean fiancée had booked. The two spent nine hours together. They have since married.
