Online Furby doll seller gets 75-year jail term

The Criminal Court Thursday handed a 75-year jail term to Chonnikarn Taichilasoonthorn, an online seller of Furby doll.

She was charged of deceiving others of the availability of low-priced dolls, which led to the transferred payments of over Bt5 million to her bank account.

Thanks to her cooperation in the case, the jail term is reduced to 37 years and 6 months, on top of a fine of Bt62,500.

As this is her first criminal offence and all affected buyers are compensated, a 3-year probation is put in plce. She still has to pay the fine and honour a 30-hour social service order.
