36 year old Lee Vin Sen has been sentenced to ten weeks jail after pleading guilty to paying the girl S$450 for sex at Marina Bay Sands Hotel on 23 September 2010.
He is the 13th man to be sentenced for having paid sex with an underage girl in a high-profile online vice ring case.
Lee’s friend was the one who contacted the pimp and arranged a session with the girl, but he was unable to pay for her services after losing money at a casino.
He then ‘passed’ the girl to Lee who agreed and proceeded to have sex with the girl, who was 17 years old at that time.
District Judge Chay Yuen Fatt called Lee an “accidental client” and gave him a shorter sentence than the other men who were jailed 12 weeks.
The court also heard that Lee has been “mentally unstable” since he was charged and has been “receiving treatment for the past six months.”
