Trainee teacher jailed for having sex with minors

One of the girls that he had sex with was only 12-years-old at the time of the offence.

A TRAINEE teacher was sentenced to 15 months in jail yesterday for having sex with two underage girls he met online a few years ago.

His offences were revealed when the 12-year-old girl was warded at the National University Hospital in July 2008 for stomach pain and vomiting.

She was found to be pregnant, and later told a police officer about her sexual encounters with several men.

Tests of the aborted foetus showed that Kok was not the biological father.

According to the Straits Times, an MOE spokesman said it would initiate disciplinary proceedings against him with a view to terminating him from service.

When Kok applied to be a teacher last year, he had falsely declared that he was not undergoing any form of police investigation.

'MOE will review the applicant screening process to identify areas for improvement,' the spokesman said.

According to The New Paper, Kok will be sacked from the National Institute of Education and will have to pay $50,000 to $60,000 for breaching his teaching contract.

The case comes hot on the heels of convicted child porn scholar Jonathan Wong, also 23. He was studying at the University of York in Britain on a teaching scholarship when he was caught for possessing child pornography.

Wong was given a six-months suspended sentence, which meant he need not serve time in jail, if he does not re-offend within two years.

MOE also revoked Wong's scholarship and his university expelled him.
