    The sentence imposed will depend on the facts of the case as well as your mitigation and antecedents, if any. In a molest case, the court has discretion to impose a fine or a jail sentence, which depends on various factors, including the body part of the victim that the accused had contact with. The prevailing sentence for molesting a victim’s private parts or sexual organs is 9 months imprisonment with caning. See Penal Code, s 354.
