Transsexual jailed 15 months for oral sex with boy


A transsexual who performed oral sex on a 15-year-old boy was jailed for 15 months on Wednesday.

The long-haired and bespectacled Tan Yeong Perng, 36, had admitted earlier to the sexual offence in the storeroom of a 7-Eleven store in Upper Thomson on Jan 8, 2011.

A district court heard that he was working as a store assistant and cashier when the victim came to the convenience store at around 2am to buy pancakes.

Tan, who underwent breast implant surgery in Thailand in 2004, cross-dresses as a female and wears make-up, asked the student his name, age and where he lived. Not wanting to reveal too much as Tan was a stranger, the victim revealed his age among a few other bits of information.
