Former FSU player could be caned in Singapore



A former Florida State football player could become the first American in 16 years to be caned in Singapore because he broke the law. What law did he break? He stayed there too long.

Kamair Charlton, a reserve tight end for the Seminoles from 1992 to 1996, was arrested Sept. 1 when he attempted to leave Singamore 169 days after his 90-day social visit pass had expired. Staying in Singapore more than 90 days after the expiration of a visa carries a maximum punshment of six months in jail and at least three cane strokes. According to the Associated Press, Charlton was in Singapore while his wife received medical care for pregnancy complications. It was not clear why Charlton and his wife chose Singapore for medical treatment.
