Singapore – Farlynda Tan, 38, was sentenced to 9 months and S $ 920 on Friday, February 19 for running a social escort service that offered sex.

Among the women hired by Tan, a mother of two and a former model and escort, was a 16-year-old girl.

CNA reports that Tan has made S $ 30,000 over four years.

She pleaded guilty to two charges under the Women’s Charter for living part of the 16-year-old girl’s income and using her services as a sex worker.

Tan, who was arrested in 2019, hired freelance models and escorts to provide intimate services to male clients.

The teenager had seen Tan’s ad on Carousell for freelance modeling and “Fast Cash”. Tan told her about the two types of work she did – companionship and accompaniment.

Tan stated that having a “friend” would include sexual services for her clients and that she would take 40 percent of the teen’s income.

The teen, falsely claiming to be 19 years old, agreed to the agreement.

Tan couldn’t tell the girl’s age.

The teenager’s first “intimacy” assignment was on June 14, 2019, when she met a Singaporean man at the Marina Mandarin Hotel and had sexual relations with him for which she was paid S $ 1,300. She gave Tan S $ 520.

Her second assignment came later that month, on June 22nd, when she was paid S $ 1,001 for sexual services she provided to a man in a Sengkang condominium. Then she gave Tan S $ 402 and brought Tan’s total income to the girl to S $ 920.

Until she was arrested in November 2019, Tan continued to do “intimacy tasks” for various women in her employment.

Authorities found that she hired the teen from her exchange on WhatsApp.

Tan, who cried during Friday’s trial, initially denied running an escort company.

Her lawyer, Mr. Noor Mohamed Marican, said she wanted to admit guilty sooner but could “not adjust to the reality that she was facing”.

He said to District Judge Prem Raj, “She is now having trouble facing reality. That is why it collapses multiple times. It has embarrassed her so much and it is her own fault, I realize, but this is a difficult time now. She told me she wanted to go ahead and be a useful citizen and move forward and not repeat what she did. “

Mr. Marican added that she was repentant for her actions.

Tan could have been jailed for up to five years and fined S $ 10,000 or both for procuring a girl for prostitution and living on income.
