41 year old teacher dating former student
He had sex with a 15-year-old student he was in a romantic relationship with and got her pregnant with a child who is now two years old, the court heard.
The 41-year-old man cannot be named due to a gag order preventing the publication of any information that would reveal the identity of the victim.
This intimate relationship continued until the girl ended it in September or October the following year, when she entered polytechnic.
In November 2016, she discovered that she was 16 weeks' pregnant, and told the man about this through a text message.
She began taking tuition classes from him along with another student at his house on Saturday mornings, up until she completed her O-Level examinations in November 2015.
In June 2015, the teacher began inviting the girl to his home outside of tuition classes.
The man had taught the teenage girl science and physics for all four years of her secondary school education from 2012 to 2015.
She is now 19 years old and has a two-year-old child fathered by the man.
He claimed that their physical intimacy had developed slowly and was restricted to kissing, touching each other, and rubbing with only their underwear on.
For each count of sexual penetration of a minor, he could be jailed for up to 10 years, fined, or both.
SINGAPORE: A former secondary school teacher was found guilty on Wednesday (Jul 31) of 19 counts of sexual penetration of a minor.

The man is expected to return to court on Aug 29 for mitigation and sentencing.
