SINGAPORE - Sex with a hundred men on 150 occasions in 15 days. This was the ordeal forced upon a 17-year-old Chinese girl by her pimp during her stint as a streetwalker in Geylang.
Chinese national Tang Huisheng, 37, who had brought the minor here from China, kept all her earnings, which amounted to about $9,000.
And when she was arrested on June 1 on suspicion of being underage, Tang was standing next to her.
He managed to slip away and, on the same night, began a four-day gambling spree at the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) casino, where he lost $18,300.
If he thought his luck had deserted him, worse was in store. Before he could leave on a flight for China the next day, the law caught up with him. Facing seven charges under the Women's Charter, he claimed trial.
But when his trial started yesterday, Tang, who was unrepresented, decided, in a surprise move, to plead guilty.
But in a surprise move, he admitted to four charges: bringing the minor here for prostitution, living off her immoral earnings, harbouring her, and aiding a client to have paid sex with the girl for $100.
Two other charges will be taken into consideration during sentencing while the seventh charge was withdrawn.
Fifteen of the 24 men so far charged with having paid sex with the underage prostitute have pleaded guilty, with 13 jailed between 11 and 12 weeks.
The court heard yesterday of how Tang had brought the girl here to be a prostitute after his sister had tricked her into going to him in Zhuhai, China.
