An 18-year-old student helped her boyfriend run the Discreet Passion social escort agency which was a front for prostitution in 2010. They were arrested after a year and charged with getting women for prostitution and living on immoral earnings.

Mabel Wong Liya, now 20 and unemployed, was sentenced today to 1 1/2 years of probation and ordered to perform 100 hours of community service.

Last month, her boyfriend Andy Chang Shi Chang, 29, was jailed for eight months.

The couple's online vice ring offered nine women, all Singaporeans. They would collect $50 to $100 from the prostitutes, who in turn would charge between $250 and $500 for each session.
