He has been given approximately a month to consider the offer.

The month that was given to him to consider was for him to speak to his loved ones on the decision to take.

The hearing for this lasted two minutes, and Yee is set to appear in court again on Dec 2.

Yee was first charged in Oct 2020 for solicitation and possession of child pornography and for allegedly exchanging obscene photos and messages numbered in the thousands with a 14 year old Texan girl.

He went to the States to seek asylum in 2016 and was granted it in 2017.

His asylum status could be revoked if he is convicted of his charges and he could be deported back to Singapore.
