Third man jailed for underage sex

A property agent has become the third man to be jailed for sex with a 15-year-old girl, joining a gynaecologist and a sales executive who were convicted earlier for similar offences with the same girl.

Lee Pok Seng, 44, was given 10 months’ jail yesterday for having sex with the girl at his home in Petir Road in mid-2012.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Sharmila Sripathy-Shanaz said Lee was looking for a “no-strings attached’’ relationship when he posted an advertisement on a local website seeking sex.

Sometime in mid-2012, the minor responded and expressed an interest to meet him. Subsequently, in a text message, she told him that she was 15 years old and in Secondary 3.

A few days after they first communicated with one another, he picked her up and drove her to his flat.

When they got there, he told the girl that they should not have sex as she was only 15 but she disagreed. Sharmila said Lee subsequently relented. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
