Case reported in “The Straits Times” 22/01/2014

A man was charged in court for having admittedly paid for sex with an underage prostitute.

The accused allegedly spotted the escort’s picture on a website, which claimed she was 18 years old. He then paid $650 for a 90-minute session with her at the Strand Hotel in Bencoolen Street in December 2010

Our criminal defence lawyers, stated in the mitigation that our client had been awarded a Public Service Commission scholarship in teaching in 1998. Furthermore, it was added that he had been an outstanding teacher since June 2006.

As a result, we were successful in getting a lower sentence for our client. He received a reduced sentence of a jail term of three months. He could have been jailed up to seven years and fined.
