Poly student by day, pimp by night

A NANYANG Polytechnic student yesterday pleaded guilty to living off three Geylang prostitutes.

Wong Jiong Yang, 18, who was arrested after the women were nabbed in January, also admitted to managing a place of assignation – or the contact point for customers seeking the services of the prostitutes.

His sentencing was adjourned till next month for a pre-sentence report for the court to evaluate his suitability for probation.

A district court heard that a police officer attached to the Streetwalker Taskforce arrested three Thai women in a Geylang lodging house on the morning of Jan 24.

The women, aged between 22 and 27, admitted they were prostitutes and that Wong was their pimp, after which the Singaporean was arrested.

Investigations revealed that he was offered the “job” by an unidentified man called Zen through an Internet chatroom some time in December last year.

Wong got his instructions over the phone, when he would be told which alley to solicit in.

He made $5 for every $50 that he collected from each customer. At the end of his shift, he would hand over the day’s takings to a runner on a motorcycle.

Since Zen used an unlisted number, Wong had no means of contacting him and never met him. Neither did the prostitutes.

The women came here by coach from Hat Yai in Thailand in mid-January, disembarking at the Golden Mile Complex along Beach Road, where they boarded a taxi arranged by an agent to take them to the lodging house. The identity of the agent is also unknown.

Wong, who was in court with his father, fidgeted constantly as he waited for his case to be heard.

For living on immoral earnings, the student can be fined up to $10,000 and jailed for up to five years.

He can be fined an additional $3,000 and jailed up to three years for managing a place of assignation.

he only earned $30 when he was being arrested
IMHO, it's his naivety that landed him in this hot soup (naive to trust a stranger whom he has not met, didn't even know his actual name and naive to think it's easy way to earn $$)
