Sorry but we couldn’t get his profile pic….

For continuing to be an asshat, Amos Yee might just end up in the tough highly regimented Reformative Training Centre (RTC).

The prosecution in the Amos Yee trial called for the teen to be sent to the Reformative Training Centre (RTC) instead of probation.

He was back in the State Courts on Wednesday for an urgent hearing after his probation officer filed a report to the State Court complaining that the teen refused to attend any interviews with the probation officer and has informed her that he does not want probation, since the Court made the order for a probation report on May 12.

Yee was found guilty of two charges – one for making offensive or wounding remarks against Christianity and another for circulating obscene imagery.

Prosecutors said to media after a short hearing on Wednesday that recommending an RTC charge for Yee would be in line with attempts for rehabilitation as it was understood that a jail term or fine would not have rehabilitative effects on him.

Reformative training at the RTC is an option for young offenders aged between 16 and 18 years old who are assessed to be unsuitable for probation. Offenders will be detained for a minimum of 18 months in the RTC.
