A Malaysian man was sentenced to four months in jail on Tuesday for having sex with underage Vietnamese girls, The Straits Times reported.
Chan See Sean, 41, who worked in a piling and construction company, is the sixth man sentenced for obtaining sexual services of three Vietnamese girls aged below 18 in July 2011.
Chan was accused of engaging the services of two underage prostitutes on separate occasions last July.
He met the first girl, a 16-year-old, through an unnamed Vietnamese female at a pub in July last year. He then proceeded to drive her to a hotel where they had sex. He paid her $100 for her services.
In the second case, Chan met a 17-year-old girl at the same pub where she was a female companion of his friend. His friend told her that Chan liked her, and after she finished work at about 2am, she followed Chan to a hotel where they had sex. He paid her $120.
On both occasions, Chan asked the girls for their age. They told him they were 20 years old, and Chan took them at their word and did not verify their ages.
He could have been jailed for up to seven years and/or fined on each charge.
