A former customer service officer was jailed for 30 months on Tuesday for having sex with a 15-year-old girl.

Chee Wei Tong, 24, who faced 10 charges, had admitted to three counts of underage sex at his Kang Ching Road flat and at a staircase landing of an HDB block in August 2012.

Chee, who was a grassroots volunteer at Punggol 21 community centre, is the fourth man to have been convicted and jailed for having sex with the girl. His sentence is the stiffest to date.

The court heard that Chee came to know the girl in mid-2012 when she created an account on OkCupid, a dating and social networking website.
