Teen, neighbour had sex with 13-year-old girl

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.

    All-new 2015 Subaru Outback reestablishes higher ground

    Much of Subaru’s modern day success in America can be attributed to one car: the Outback. Born in 1994 as a response to the growing popularity of SUVs, the Outback established a winning formula of combining a high-riding suspension, butch body cladding and big round fog lights to its comfortable, no-nonsense Legacy wagon. It is the kind of unique product that only a quirky company like Subaru could build, and was one that kept Subaru from slipping into ubiquity even as traditional SUVs and crossovers have taken over the world.

    For the record, it's the year 2014. I mention that in case someone reading this story about a push to replace horses with motorized carriages thinks they've stumbled onto some archival piece by accident. It's been more than 100 years since the first vehicles began to trundle around Manhattan, but the last remaining vestiges of horse-powered transport in the city could be nigh — if the backers of a massive electric wagon get their way.
