She was his student and, as it turned out, in love with him.

She showered him with gifts and paid for a meal he had with other students.

But Mr Tey Tsun Hang, 42, did not feel the same way about her. After he made her pregnant, Mr Tey told her to pay for the abortion, saying he didn't have the money.

He was then earning about $20,000 a month at the National University of Singapore.

Mr Tey was convicted on six counts of corruptly obtaining gifts and sex from the student. He was sentenced to five months' jail and ordered to pay a penalty of $514.80 for corruptly obtaining gifts and sex from her. He went to jail, but was later acquitted on appeal and the gifts were returned to him.
