A former quality assurance inspector was jailed for 12 months on Wednesday for instigating her teenage god-daughter to have paid sex with a Bangladeshi worker.

The 45-year-old pleaded guilty to instigating the 15-year-old Secondary 3 student to have sex with the co-accused, Md Zahangir Alam (Ronju) Mohammad Ali Sheikh, 30, for $200 at Jin Dong Hotel in Geylang last October.

The inspector, who cannot be named so as to protect the minor, was given a concurrent sentence of four months' jail and a $4,000 fine after admitting to procuring the girl for prostitution.
