For about two years, he allegedly preyed on at least 10 boys, aged between 10 and 15, to fulfil his sexual desires.
He allegedly made two of them perform oral sex on him and instructed others to take lewd videos and/or photographs of themselves and send them to his mobile phone.
Goh Jun Guan, 26, faces 30 charges, which include various sexual offences, transmitting obscene videos and photographs, and possessing three obscene films in his mobile phone. He also allegedly filmed himself masturbating and sent the obscene videos to some of his victims.
According to court papers, Goh allegedly began sexually abusing the boys in 2012.
Most of the alleged offences took place over the next two years in the western part of Singapore.
In mid-2012, he allegedly performed oral sex on a boy, who was under 14 at the time, in a HDB flat in the west.
He allegedly did the same on two other occasions. He also allegedly made the boy perform oral sex on him twice. All these offences happened in 2013 in the toilets of shopping malls.
In December 2013, he allegedly performed oral sex on a 10-year-old boy, who is believed to be his youngest victim, in the same HDB flat.
Goh is also accused of touching the private parts of three other boys.
He allegedly touched and kissed one victim, a 14-year-old boy, in a public library toilet in 2012.
He also allegedly touched a 12-year-old boy in the library in 2013.
In a separate incident, he made that same boy take a photo of his own private parts and send the photo to his mobile phone.
Goh is expected to be back in court on Aug 3 for a pre-trial conference.
The maximum penalties for the various charges range from a $1,500 fine and/or a jail term of up to six months for possessing three obscene videos, and up to 20 years with possible fine and caning for making each boy perform oral sex on him.
