A former River Valley High School teacher was jailed for three months on Wednesday after he admitted having paid for sex with an underage prostitute.

Chua Ren Cheng confessed he was a "sinner" as he became the 32nd man to be imprisoned for having commercial sex with the 17-year-old.

The 33-year-old had paid $650 for a 90-minute session with her at the Strand Hotel in Bencoolen Street in December 2010.

He owned up to his crime on Monday and could have been jailed up to seven years and fined.
