Michael Peter Fay (born in 1975) is an American man who was the subject of international attention in 1994 when he was sentenced to caning in Singapore for theft and vandalism at age 18. Although caning is a routine court sentence in Singapore, its unfamiliarity to Americans caused controversy, and Fay's case was believed to be the first caning involving an American citizen. Fay was sentenced on 3 March 1994 to four months in jail, a fine of S$3,500, and six strokes of the cane. The number of cane strokes in Fay's sentence was ultimately reduced from six to four after U.S. officials requested leniency.
