Man, 27, jailed for making cousin, 14, have sex with girl, 14
He filmed himself having sex with an underage girl and later threatened to upload the footage on the Internet if she did not submit to his lust again.
The terrified girl, who was only 14 years old at the time, gave in and had sex with the 25-year-old on Nov 7, 2013.
But he took his perversions a step further by asking his underage cousin, who was also 14, to film them.
Then he told the boy to have sexual intercourse with the girl while he watched.
The man, who cannot be named to protect the victim's identity, was jailed for four years yesterday.
Now 27, he pleaded guilty to three counts of sexually penetrating a minor and one count of causing his underage cousin to have sexual intercourse with the unwilling girl.
Three other counts of causing the boy to have sex with the girl and seven counts each of sexually penetrating her and criminal intimidation were taken into consideration.
This is the second case of this nature to appear before the courts this year.
The jobless man got to know the girl at a traditional dance club in April 2012.
Four months later, with her mother's consent, he stayed at her home for a few months, sleeping in the living room with her younger brother.
They kept in touch after he moved out and she would tell him about her family problems.
They began a sexual relationship that year and he filmed her performing sexual acts on him.
In April 2013, she went to look for him in Jurong and found him at a staircase landing of a block of flats. They then had unprotected sexual intercourse with her consent.
AWARE OF AGE
Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Rachel Ng said he was aware that she was below 16 years old.
On Nov 7, he asked her to meet him at Jurong East MRT Station so that they could talk about her family problems.
He took her to his cousin's flat and introduced her to the boy.
On the pretext of talking in private, the man took her into a bedroom. He then called his cousin over, whispered something into his ear and handed over his mobile phone.
The girl moved away when he tried to remove her clothes. He told her not to struggle or he would upload her sex videos on the Internet.
She then realised the boy, whose case is still pending, was filming them with the mobile phone.
The man had unprotected sexual intercourse with the girl without her consent before asking his cousin to join in.
DPP Ng said: "The victim was scared and said that she did not want to, but (the man) shouted at her and raised his hand as if he was about to slap her."
She gave in out of fear and later left the flat.
Three days later, the accused took her to the flat again, where he forced her to perform oral sex on him in a bedroom.
About five minutes later, he called the cousin to come in. But the boy told him that his mother was at the void deck. The man quickly got dressed and took her girl to the living room.
The girl made a police report about her ordeal on Feb 25 last year.
Quoting a report by Dr Bernardine Woo, a senior consultant at the Child Guidance Clinic, DPP Ng said: "(The girl) has been tearful, withdrawn and has been having insomnia, interrupted sleep, nightmares, loss of appetite and difficulty concentrating on her studies.
"She was also afraid of being alone."
Dr Padma Krishnamoorthy from KK Women's and Children's Hospital also produced a report that the girl was found to have gardnerella, a condition that produces an unpleasant vaginal discharge. It is not a sexually transmitted disease, but can be caused by increased sexual activity.
In mitigation, the man, who did not have a lawyer, said he was remorseful and asked District Judge Jasvender Kaur to give him a chance to turn over a new leaf.
For each count of sexually penetrating a minor, he could have been jailed up to 10 years and fined.
(The girl) has been tearful, withdrawn and has been having insomnia, interrupted sleep, nightmares, loss of appetite and difficulty concentrating on her studies.

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.
