A 21-year-old part-time piano teacher in Singapore has admitted to molesting his five-year-old student in November 2016
By pleading guilty to a charge of using criminal force to outrage the modesty of a minor yesterday, 23 April, he faces a maximum of five years imprisonment, caning, and a fine.
The man will be sentenced for the crime at a later date, Malay Mail reported.
During one of their one-on-one lessons, the then-19-year-old slipped his hands inside the girl's panties and touched her private parts on the pretext of correcting her posture
He also told her to squeeze her thighs.
The five-year-old did not object, but told him to stop when she started to feel pain.
Though he apologised, the teenager did not remove his hand.
When the lesson ended, the girl did not tell her grandfather what happened because she did not think anything of it
The court also heard that she did not tell her grandfather about the incident because he was a "boy".
When the girl got home, she spent an unusually long time in the toilet.
After the lesson, the five-year-old told her mother that she felt pain when she wanted to urinate.
She then explained what the piano teacher had done to her.
