Maid jailed for sex with boss' teenage son
Only two months into her job, she lures 14-year-old into having unprotected sex in his room
Barely two months after she started working for her Singaporean employers, the Indonesian maid had sex with her 14-year-old charge.
The 28-year-old was jailed for 10 months on Monday for sexually penetrating a minor.
No one involved in the case can be named because of a gag order protecting the victim.
She was one of two foreign domestic workers hired by the boy's family to work in their house in northern Singapore.
It was her first time working here.
On Sept 5, the boy, a secondary school student, was alone at home with the maids while his parents and his uncle, who lives with the family, were out running errands, a district court heard.
At about 7pm, he showed the maid some magic card tricks near the kitchen. When she tried to hug him, he moved her hand away.
After he went up to his room on the fourth storey, the maid took laundry up to the room at about 7.45pm. He was sitting on a chair at his computer table.
The maid went up to him and kissed his cheeks and neck from behind.
The boy stood up and tried to leave. But the maid hugged him, then removed his pants and underwear.
He was shocked, but did not respond as she led him to the bed and got him to lie down.
She had sex with the boy for three to five minutes, stopping only when they heard the uncle returning home.
The maid left the room after both of them put on their clothes.
During dinner, the boy felt disturbed enough to call his mother in an attempt to tell her what happened. But he was reluctant to tell her about the sexual encounter.
When his father came home later that night, the boy told him about the incident.
After the parents called the police, the maid was arrested on Sept 6 and charged in court the next day.
Asking for a 10-month jail term, Deputy Public Prosecutor Nicholas Lai pointed out that the maid had unprotected sex with the boy despite testing positive for chlamydia, hence putting him at risk of catching the disease.
Furthermore, there was a huge disparity between their ages.
The judge agreed. The 10-month jail term was backdated to Sept 7, the day she was charged in court.
