Posted by temasektimes on July 9, 2012
Disgraced former Ministry of Education scholar Jonathan Wong has been sentenced to five years’ jail after being convicted of committing five sexual offences, including having sex with a 15 year old girl he befriended at a church.
Wong reportedly had sex with the girl seven times and commit acts of indecency on her three times at various locations such as public toilets and staircases between February and June 2011.
His crimes were exposed after the girl told her father that she had sex with him after her teacher in Australia informed him that her grades were deteriorating.
In December 2010, Wong was given a suspended six-month sentence by a British court for downloading child pornography while on his MOE scholarship which had been revoked, causing his parents to sell off their home to repay the S$175,000 in bond fees he owed to the MOE.
