Help for disadvantaged citizens

I was reading a forum post by someone who was committed criminal breach of trust sharing his stint in changi prison and he said he came across a senior in his 70s who was jailed because he could not pay the fine for illegal hawking which he took up to support his wife as they have no children.

I have no way to verify this account but if this is true then i think the govt needs to tighten its social safety net further for disadvantaged citizens.
