Jailed for causing minor to have sex

In the first case of its kind, a former information technology specialist was jailed for six months on March 11 after causing a minor to have sex with an 18-year-old part-time model.

The 41-year-old, who cannot be named, took photographs of the poses and sexual acts between the minor, then 15, and the teenage model whom he had hired for a "couples shoot'' at Conrad Centennial Hotel in late 2012.

At some point, the Singapore permanent resident from India put the camera on "auto'' mode.

He then took off his clothes, joined the pair on the bed and had sex with the girl.

The offences came to light on Jan 8 last year, when the son of the boy's guardian saw photographs of the threesome on the Internet.

The minor filed a police report the following day.
