Former Pei Chun Public School principal Lee Lip Hong, 39, was yesterday jailed for nine weeks for having paid sex with an underage prostitute.
Before entering the Subordinate Courts, Lee told reporters that he confessed to his wife that he had cheated on her on Dec 2 last year.
When asked what his wife had thought, he said he had caused enough distress to her and he had to take responsibility for his own actions.
He said that as a husband, he had caused the greatest damage to his wife, and had asked himself how he could have done such a thing to her.
He added that before the incident, they had not been wearing their wedding bands for some time. Two days later, they decided to renew their marriage vows.
