Ho Chi Minh People’s Court on Thursday handed the sentence to the 36-year-old ex-pat on a theft of property charge.

According to the verdict, Nowicki had earlier visited a spa in Bui Vien, District 1 March 8 afternoon to get the service.

Upon leaving the salon, he noticed an iPhone 11 cell phone (which worths around US$1,202) on a chair and subsequently pocketed the device which, according to VNE, belonged to a female receptionist at the facility.

Following the receptionist’s chase, Nowicki finally dropped her phone in the street.

The Britain English teacher is reportedly having a temporary off-work time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

At the trail, the offender admitted he had been dealing with “mental issues” since age 18 and he was not “in his right mind’ when he committed the crime as he was “worried, panicked and could not control himself due to his mental instability and the COVID-19 impact”.

An investigation found Nowicki had held several fraud-related criminal records back in the U.K.

“I like to help those who are in difficult. I’m not rich. This just comes from my heart. Vietnamese people are very kind. When knowing someone is in difficult, they offer help voluntarily”, said the middle-aged woman.

The darker it was, the more people came to John’s house to offer help. Gifts were given to him with sincere affection.
