Teacher jailed 10 years for ‘sexually penetrating’ a 8 year old boy twice

Posted by temasektimes on March 27, 2012

A former Chinese language teacher was jailed for 10 years and ordered to be given six strokes of the cane on Monday for molesting two boys and performing oral sex on an eight-year-old in school.

The 38-year-old had admitted to two counts of molesting an 11-year-old and eight-year-old and two counts of penetrating another eight-year-old in 2009 including two counts of ‘sexually penetrating’ a minor

The court learnt that he had used a PlayStation Portable (PSP) game console to distract the boy before ‘bending down’ to give oral sex to him. The same tactic was used on another boy who was eight at the time.

His sexual acts with the students came to light only when the school’s principal received two complaints from a parent and a pupil.

Despite the vile act, the teacher does not appear to be repentant in court as he said to the judge in mitigation:

“I hope that the court will take into consideration that I have no previous criminal record and to be lenient in sentencing.”

Asking for a stiff sentence to be imposed, deputy public prosecutor S. Sellakumaran said:

“The parents of the victims could not decide on which teachers would be teaching their children. Indeed, they had no reason to so decide as they were entitled to expect that all teachers in the school would uphold the unreserved trust placed in them and adhere to the highest professional and moral standards.”

The latest scandal involving teachers come barely two weeks after another 37 year old male teacher was arrested for installing three pin-hole cameras in a girls’ toilet in school. A week earlier, a 39 year old former primary school principal was reported to have been among a group of men questioned by the police in connection with an online vice ring.

In response to media queries, Education Minister Heng Swee Kiat said it is important not to let “one or two incidents” tarnish the image of the teaching profession, because there are many good teachers around.

He added that there would be a couple of black sheep from time to time in spite of efforts to maintain professional standards.

    Are these teachers Singaporeans or foreigners???

    Dear fellow Singaporeans for the last 10 years or so we can see how the civil service & policies crafted by the government is favoring foreigners over Singaporeans. There is a sense of double standards as if if you are a foreigner you are automatically a talent, if you are a local Singaporean you are discriminated while jobs, education scholarships etc at our expense is given away to foreigners.

    In recent days the above mentioned just got worst as some foreigners brought crime along to our Singapore. Cases such as the 24 year old PRC who raped a 13 year old girl.

    Now there has been cases of potential kidnap of young children and the police dismissed it by “warning Singaporeans not to spread rumors”

    We need to come together, as many of us in huge numbers, to demand transparency from government, the police, immigration authorities and hold them accountable for the current sad state of events our country is in.

    Come rally with me for “A Rally for Singaporeans”
    Venue: Hong Lim Park

    Why pussyfoot with soft words…sexually penetrating the minor. This sex maniac raped a small boy. In USA he would be jailed for life without parole. That is what is needed for evil predators like him. He has destroyed the young lives with his gay perversion.

    He could have satisfied his lust with other venues for gay sex in Singapore. And I hope he rots in jail for a long time.

    Ron, Ron, Ron. The teacher is not gay. He targets specifically small children. Thus he is a paedophile.
    He would not be interested in any older male victims.
    Only small children. Do not mislabel. It only makes you look foolish and ignorant.
