Two more men were sentenced to jail on Friday for commercial sex with a minor.

Storeman Yee Yew Seng, 46, was sentenced to three months' jail for paying $200 for the sexual services of a 17-year-old Vietnamese girl at a Geylang hotel sometime in July last year.

He was given another one week's jail for stealing $1,368 worth of fans from Toyomi warehouse at Shunli Industrial Complex on May 28 this year. Both sentences are consecutive.

The court heard that Yee approached the girl at a pub in Geylang Road and asked her in Vietnamese to "have sex''. She quoted $250 for overnight sexual services and he agreed.
