A former assistant engineer with the Republic of Singapore Air Force was jailed for nine weeks on Monday for commercial sex with an underaged escort, the 29th man to be convicted in a long-running online vice case involving 51 men.

Goh Wee Seong, 35, now a courier delivery driver, admitted to paying $500 for the sexual services of the 17-year-old at Hotel 81 Bencoolen on Oct 23, 2010.

A district court heard that Goh came across a website in 2009 or 2010 through a thread of another website Sammy Boy Forum on escorts providing sexual services.

He sent text messages to the pimp, Tang Boon Thiew, to ask if the minor was available.
