A SALESMAN who had commercial sex with a 17-year-old girl in the online vice ring case has been jailed for 12 weeks.
Sng Kok Wee, 31, is the 23rd man to be dealt with to-date. He was among 51 men charged last year with paid sex with the same girl.
A district court heard that Sng came across a website on escorts who provided sexual services.
The girl was among the escorts working for Tang Boon Thiew, 40, and was described as an 18-year-old polytechnic student on the website.
After seeing her details, Sng was keen to engage her services and sent text messages to Tang to find out if she was available on Oct 10, 2010. He was quoted S$450 (RM1,125) for an hour of the girl’s sexual services and the location was Hotel 81 Bencoolen.
Tang was jailed six years last week.
Meanwhile, an engineering manager, who had commercial sex with a 17-year-old girl from China who was forced into prostitution in Singapore, has been jailed for 12 weeks.
Nordin Mohamed Noor, 49, pleaded guilty to one count of paying the girl S$100 (RM250) for her sexual services at a lodging house in Geylang Road on May 23.
So far, 24 men have been charged with engaging in commercial sex with the Shandong province girl.
Nordin is the 20th man to plead guilty and the 18th to be sentenced. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
