a second chance

Post by tamguatlay »

While the lead prosecutor, Mr Gopal Sri Ram, urged the court to issue an arrest warrant against Rosmah for breaching a court order, a three-judge panel unanimously decided to give Rosmah a chance and withhold issuing a warrant, according to the New Straits Times.

Should it be "a second chance" instead of "a chance"?

Thanks.

(Not a grammar issue, but...) that would seem to make slightly better sense.
