Pimp's wife jailed for procuring women

A FILIPINO who helped recruit women from the Philippines to offer sexual services to customers at three of her Singaporean husband’s pubs was jailed for three months.

Sharon Trinidad Lorenzo, 31, pleaded guilty to procuring the women for prostitution.

Her husband Govindaraju Siva-kumar, 40, was jailed on Tuesday for 18 months for offences that included harbouring prostitutes and managing an illegal brothel.

Lorenzo, who is out on bail, was allowed to start serving sentence on Jan 10. She could have been fined up to S$10,000 (RM25,764) or jailed for up to five years, or both. — The Straits Times/ Asia News Network
