SINGAPORE — Fourteen men were charged this morning (Sept 4) for having paid sex with an underage girl, in the third vice ring case since a high-profile online vice ring case broke last year.

10 out of 14 men are expected to plead guilty. One of the men — a 72-year-old housekeeper — is claiming trial.



The men are aged between 22 to 75 years old. The youngest is a full-time national serviceman, while the oldest man is unemployed.

According to court documents, the men had paid between S$40 to S$150 to obtain sexual services from the underage girl at various hotels in Geylang in May this year. The girl, who cannot be named to protect her identity, was 17 years old at the time of the offences.

More men are expected to be charged at a later date.

If convicted, the men could be jailed up to seven years or fine, or both.

The undergrad does not know how to learn from the mistake of others.

Sigh... things are getting worse by the day.
Just came across this article in CNA:

Caption

SINGAPORE: A gynaecologist on Tuesday pleaded guilty in a district court to having sex with a minor -- despite knowing she was more than 40 years his junior when he met her for the first time.

63-year-old Ong Theng Kiat pleaded guilty to two charges of having sex with a minor and agreed to have 11 other charges that included oral sex taken into consideration.

Ong has temporarily stopped practising as a gynaecologist, as of July.

The court heard that Ong got to know the girl in 2011 through a dating website -- when she was 14 years old, and he, 61. She had indicated on her profile that she was 18 as that was the minimum age required to register an account on the website.

Ong sent the girl a lengthy message and the pair then exchanged phone numbers and began texting each other. It was through these texts that the girl informed Ong that she was 14 years old. After he had asked her to meet up, the court heard that the pair eventually met four times -- in September 2011 and sometime in early 2012.

The court was told that at their first meeting in September, Ong drove her to Bukit Brown Cemetery, located along Lorong Halwa, where she changed out of her school uniform.

Ong told the girl that he was 40 years old and that his work was related to stocks. Later, he took her to a hotel where they had sex. He then asked her to take two morning-after pills.

Then in early 2012, Ong picked the girl up from school and proceeded to the cemetery, where they had sex in the backseat of his car.

Ong's lawyers, Mr Subhas Anandan and Ms Diana Ngiam, submitted a psychiatric report to the court to show that there was a causal link between his offences and his major depressive disorder.

However, Deputy Public Prosecutor Sharmila Sripathy-Shanaz said that there were several aggravating factors -- such as the wide age disparity, and the evidence that Ong had intended to engage in sexual activity from the first meeting.

She also pointed out that Ong had taken the girl to the cemetery for the trysts -- which would be far from the public eye -- and had given the girl contraceptives, which would not have been readily available to her.

Ong is likely to be sentenced on November 11.
