Man pleads guilty to raping 12-year-old girl
A labourer at Lim Chu Kang Muslim cemetery pleaded guilty, on Monday (April 27), to two counts of raping a 12-year-old girl.
Even though the girl consented to having sex, it is considered rape as she was below 14 years old.
Roslan Jaafar, 41, also pleaded guilty to one count of sexually penetrating the child.

Roslan committed the offences in May 2012.
