A 40-year-old man and his teen neighbour had sex with an underaged girl in a lorry after she got drunk on orange juice with vodka last year.
The teenager, now 17, and girl, now 14, were from the same secondary school and used to date. A few days after their break up, the two students met with the boy's 40-year-old neighbour and hung out near Kranji Camp on 21 April, The Straits Times reported.
After having two drinks, which were supplied by the man, the girl grew tipsy and wanted to stop but was encouraged by the man to drink more. She later threw up and passed out, drifting in and out of consciousness.
The man and teenager then moved the girl to the back of the lorry, under the man's suggestion. The man later told the teenager to have sex with the girl but he refused and laid down to sleep at the back of the lorry.
When he woke up, he saw his neighbour having sex with his unconscious schoolmate. The 40-year-old man again asked the teenger to have sex with the girl and this time, he did. The girl remained passed out.
Later, the man drove both students back to the girl's home but she complained that she couldn't get up and was left sleeping in the back of the lorry.
Both students made it back to school the next morning but the girl's mother had already filed a missing persons report when her daughter did not return home the day before.
The truth later emerged that the girl had gone drinking with her ex-boyfriend and his neighbour, and had sex with them while intoxicated.
The teenager has pleaded guilty to having sex with a minor involving penetration. The sentence is expected to be passed on 12 December, after a probation report comes in.
He claimed he was high on drugs when the incident happened and he acted out of fear towards his 40-year-old neighbour, Channel NewsAsia reported.
For his crime, the teenager could be jailed up to 10 years and fined.
