A teacher with River Valley High School fancied an escort advertised by an online vice ring in 2010 and arranged to have sex with her for S$650 (RM1,687). She turned out to be only 17 years old.
Chua Ren Cheng, 33, who is now unemployed, pleaded guilty to having commercial sex with a minor. He will be sentenced tomorrow and could be jailed for up to seven years and fined for having paid sex with a person under 18 years of age.
Chua had come across the website of pimp Tang Boon Thiew in early late 2010, which featured the minor’s picture and listed her age as 18.
Altogether, 51 men have been charged. — The Straits Times/ Asia News Network
