Singapore prof gets jail for sex favors

03 June 2013, 13:16

Singapore - A Singaporean judge has sentenced a former law professor to five months in jail for accepting sex and gifts from a student in exchange for good marks.

The case is one of several recent corruption trials to hit this Southeast Asian city-state, which has a reputation of cultivating a clean bureaucracy.

Tey Tsun Hang was fired from the National University of Singapore last week after being convicted of six counts of corruption involving what was described in court as "unbecoming" behavior for a senior educator.

Chief District Judge Tan Siong Thye on Monday sentenced the 42-year-old to five months in jail and ordered him to pay a fine of $514. He plans to appeal and is expected to be freed on bail while awaiting further hearings.
