A man was jailed for 14 weeks on Monday for having commercial sex with an under-18 girl.

Aw Kok Pheng, 40, admitted to two of seven charges of paying between $300 and $400 for each time he engaged the minor for sexual services.

She was 15 when he had sex with her the first time at Fragrance Hotel-Royal at Telok Blangah Road on Nov 8, 2010. The girl had turned 16 when they had sex on the last occasion at Fragrance Hotel-Viva at Wishart Road on Sept 30, 2011.

A district court heard that the victim had operated through four agents and charged customers $300 onwards for her sexual services. She paid her agent $50 per customer for each encounter.
