Former Singapore Environment Council executive director Howard Shaw has been sentenced to 12 weeks' jail for having paid sex with an underage girl.
In June, the 41-year-old grandson of the founder of Shaw Organisation pleaded guilty to paying a 17-year-old girl $500 for sex in October 2010.
The Straits Times reported that Senior District Judge See Kee Oon said that Shaw did not ask the girl about her age, showing that it was not an 'honest and reasonable mistake', as Shaw's lawyer Senior Counsel Harpreet Singh had argued.
The daily added that Shaw intends to appeal the decision.
Shaw is the second man to plead guilty after former principal Lee Lip Hong, who was sentenced to nine weeks in jail.
The 39-year-old Lee was released from Changi Prison in June after serving six weeks' jail. He was released earlier because of his good behaviour.
