A student had sex with a 13-year-old schoolmate in 2009, recorded it in a video clip without her knowledge, and posted it online the following year.

The teen, now 17 and studying in a polytechnic, pleaded guilty in August to 21 counts of sex with a girl under 16, insulting her modesty, criminal intimidation, possession of obscene video clips and theft of three bicycles.

District Judge Shaiffudin Saruwan sentenced the boy - who can't be named - to 21 months of probation on Monday. He must also perform 150 hours of community service.

The judge noted that the teen had a "distorted view of heterosexual relationships", As he had been influenced by pornography over the Internet, the judge also ordered that his computer usage be monitored by his parents with help from the probation officer.
