S'pore man who withheld stepdaughter's pocket money to sexually abuse her jailed, caned
An after-sales manager, 43, was today jailed 17 years and ordered to receive 24 strokes of the cane for sexually abusing his stepdaughter 15 times between 2012 and 2013.
The girl was 13 when he withheld her pocket money when she refused to perform oral sex on him.
He had promised to give her more pocket money and presents if she had consented.
The offences came to light after she was caught stealing her classmate's wallet on Oct 2, 2013 as he had not given her pocket money.
The stepfather pleaded guilty to two counts each of sexual penetration of a minor and attempted rape, and one count of outrage of modesty.
Ten other charges for similar offences were taken into consideration.
