Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Michael Peter Fay (born May 30, 1975) is an American who briefly shot to international notoriety when he was sentenced to caning in Singapore as an 18-year-old in 1994 for theft and vandalism. Caning is a routine court sentence in Singapore but most Americans were unfamiliar with it, and Fay's case was believed to be the first caning involving an American citizen. The number of cane strokes in his sentence was reduced from six to four after U.S. officials requested leniency. Michael Fay was born in St. Louis, Missouri. His mother Randy divorced his father George when he was eight. In his childhood, Michael was diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, a fact that his lawyer would later claim made Fay not responsible for his actions.
