In a shocking twist to an already sensational case, it was revealed in court that the maid who raped the 14 year-old boy, her employer's son, had tested positive for Chlamydia trachomatis, a sexually transmitted disease (STD). The boy has not tested positive for the STD yet, but prosecutors argued that the child could have escaped infection by sheer luck and this should not lighten the burden of guilt on the accused.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Nicholas Lai urged the court to slap at least 10 months jail on the month, citing aggravating factor such as the maid's STD infection, her breach of trust and the unprotected nature of the intercourse. The maid was eventually sentenced to 10 months jail, but will have her sentence dated back to 7th September. She could have been jailed for up to 10 years and fined for having sex with a person under 16 years old.
An Indonesian domestic worker has been jailed 10 months for having sex with a 14 year-old boy, who is the son of her employer and exactly half her age.
The 28 year-old's name cannot be disclosed to protect the identity of the minor.
According to court proceedings, the maid admitted to having sex with her employer's son in a house on 5th September. The maid came to Singapore late June this year and started work for the boy's family on 3rd July.
At 7PM on 5th September, the boy was at home with the maid and another foreign domestic worker. His parents and uncle had gone out.
The boy was showing card tricks to the maid when she tried to hug him and he moved her hand away. He later went to his room, put his cards away, but a minute later the maid also entered his room. She hugged him from behind and started kissing his cheeks and neck, he stood up and tried to walk to the door.
Before he could go, the maid hugged him and began removing her shorts and panties. Shocked, the boy did not resist and she then removed her clothes and had sex with him on his bed.
She stopped the act when the boy's uncle came home. The boy later told his father what had happened.
