SINGAPORE: An ex-teacher from River Valley High School has been jailed three months for having paid sex with an underage prostitute.
Chua Ren Cheng, 33, pleaded guilty to paying S$650 to have sex with the prostitute on December 22, 2010 -- when she was still 17.
Chua had sex with the girl at a hotel in Bencoolen Street.

He contacted pimp Tang Boon Thiew, 40, on December 20, 2010, enquiring about the minor.
Chua then struck a deal with Tang on the same day for the sexual service to be provided on December 22. - CNA/ec
