After meeting a 13-year-old girl through a mutual friend in January, Muhammad Nur Hakim Abdullah asked her to be his girlfriend. She agreed and days later, he pressured her into having unprotected sex with him in his home.
Yesterday, Muhammad Nur Hakim was sentenced to a year in prison for having sex with the minor after pleading guilty to two of seven charges, which also involved oral and anal sex. The offences took place in January.The jobless man, 21, received a further five months' jail for drug-related offences.
The court heard that Muhammad Nur Hakim had invited the girl to stay overnight at his home. He asked the girl, now 14, to have sex with him after his siblings went out and the pair were left alone in the Housing Board flat in Ang Mo Kio Avenue 8. She ignored him at first, but eventually gave in after he persisted with the request.
One to two weeks later, they had sex in a toilet cubicle in Bishan Park II.
Separate cases against two other men are still pending for similar charges committed with the same girl, who ended up pregnant and had to have an abortion. A third, Musa Ahmad, also received a one-year jail term last month.
