Singapore teen had sex with 10yr-old girl

SINGAPORE: When they met through the Internet in December two years ago, he was almost 17 and she had just turned 10.

After three months of calls, SMSes, one date and a Valentine’s poem that made her “feel love,” they became an item.

Eight months later in November 2007, their relationship turned sexual. The young lovers engaged in sex on three other occasions before they were found out last January.

The girl’s mother had noticed a change in her daughter’s behaviour, and reported it to the police.

On Thursay, the teen Xia Yun, now 19, pleaded guilty to two counts of carnal connection.

Two similar charges were taken into consideration.

The court heard that the girl had met Xia via multiplayer online gaming site AuditionSea some time in December 2006.

They exchanged handphone numbers and kept in constant contact via SMSes and calls. Then on Valentine’s Day in 2007, they met for the first time.

As Xia, is still under 21, Judge Soh Tze Bian called for a pre-sentence report to find if he was eligible for probation. This will be decided next month.

If Xia is not granted probation, he faces jail of up to five years and a fine of up to S$10,000 (RM24,000) for each charge. -- ANN/ The Straits Times
