A China girl who was forced into prostitution by her pimp had serviced about 100 clients on about 150 occasions here, a Community Court heard on Friday.

The 17-year-old Chinese national would receive about $60 each time for her sexual services and her pimp would collect all her prostitution earnings.

Between May 18 and June 1 - the day of her arrest - Tang Huisheng, 37, collected a total of about $9,000 from the minor. He used the money to pay for rental and other expenses, as well as for gambling.

Tang, who is unrepresented, pleaded guilty to four charges - bringing the minor here for prostitution, living on her earnings, harbouring her, and aiding Nordin Mohammed Noor to have paid sex with the minor for $100. Two other charges will be considered when he is sentenced.
