SINGAPORE - A traffic policeman who had sex with a 13-year-old girl was jailed for 15 months on Wednesday.
Faisal Amry Abdul Rahman, 26, who faced six sexual offences and one of criminal trespass into a female toilet, pleaded guilty to two charges of sexual penetration of a minor.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Eunice Lau told the court that Faisal Amry befriended the victim sometime in late 2011 over the online social network known as iMesh.
The victim told him that she was 13 years old and a Secondary 1 student, while he told her he was in his 20s.
On Jan 16, 2012, the victim asked Faisal Amry to pick her up after school. He fetched the victim, who was in her school uniform, at an HDB carpark in Jurong West.
He drove her to Choa Chu Kang Chinese cemetery where they became intimate in the car. They then moved to the back seat where she performed oral sex on him before he had unprotected sex.
About two weeks later, he sent her a text message asking her to meet him.
On Jan 26 that year, he fetched her on his scooter. He took the victim, who was in her school uniform, to Jurong Hill Park where she performed oral sex on him in a female toilet cubicle.
He is the third man to have been convicted and sentenced for having sex with the girl, who was in Secondary 1 at the time.
The two who were jailed for having sex with the same girl are Mohammed Aziz Mohammad Berkit, 36, who was given two years' jail, and Khairul Fahmi Norisham, 24, who got 12 months. Both men, who were convicted in October last year, had another similar charge each taken into consideration.
Faisal's lawyer N Sudha Nair said since the charges were brought against her client, he realised that his future with the Singapore Police Force and civil service was bleak. He had been attending courses to better himself so that he would be able to integrate into society after serving his sentence.
She said he was remorseful for what he had done and lost much as a result of his foolish actions and poor judgment.
He could have been jailed for up to 10 years and/or fined on each charge of having sex with a person under 16 years old.
