SINGAPORE - A 20-year-old man was sentenced to reformative training on Wednesday for sexually abusing a 12-year-old boy at a children's home.

The accused, who cannot be named due to a gag order, pleaded guilty last month to having oral sex with the victim outside a toilet cubicle at the children's home in June last year. Both were then staying at the home.

A district court heard that the victim was about to take off his clothes and put them in the laundry basket outside a toilet cubicle when the accused entered the toilet.

The accused asked the victim if he was all right and the boy replied in the affirmative. The accused came nearer to the victim and asked him to perform oral sex on him.
