SINGAPORE - A national serviceman was given 15 months' probation and ordered to do 80 hours of community service for threatening to circulate topless photos of a 14-year-old girl on the Internet.
Ng Kai Boon, 21, had sweet-talked the girl into sending him a topless picture of herself last year. He then threatened to post the picture online and managed to get her to send him more such photos. Months later in March this year, he demanded that the girl accept his friend request on Facebook. If not, he would post her topless photos online, he said.
The girl went to the police instead.
On Friday, Ng was sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to criminally intimidating the girl. His parents also had to sign a $5,000 bond to ensure his good behaviour.
