Liang told the court he was remorseful for his actions and asked District Judge Ronald Gwee to give him a chance.
The above is from a local newspaper.
Is "a chance" correct?

Give him a chance to reform?
Not a teacher.
Yes. Or give him a chance to show that he can be a good, productive person and that his crime will not be repeated.
Or give him a chance to do it again!
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
As usual, Mike is right. It's a mistake. It should be "another chance" or "a second chance." Or "one more chance." Or he could ask the judge to give him a break.
Thanks to all the members who responded to my post.
Why should it be second chance when he has not been given an earlier chance?
Can it be regarded as a chance to get off scot-free?
