SINGAPORE: The former school teacher accused of having sex with her student now faces an additional eight charges, bringing the total number to nine.
The woman, who is in her early 30s, was originally charged with one count of having sex with a minor under the age of 16 some time in January this year.
She is now accused of having sex with the same student on three other occasions in January this year.
Wearing glasses and sporting side—swept hair, the petite woman also faces three counts of digital penetration with the teen in December last year.
She allegedly gave the student oral sex twice in December 2011.
Court documents stated that all acts were committed with the student’s consent.
Both the woman and teenager cannot be named due to a court order.
Earlier in court, the woman’s defence lawyer said his client intends to plead guilty.
Prosecution told the court it will be proceeding on two of the nine charges.
If convicted, the woman faces the maximum penalty of 10 years’ jail and a fine, on each count.
