Law Prof, a Former Judge, Is Criminally Charged in Claimed Sex-for-Grades Corruption Case

A law professor at National University of Singapore is facing six criminal corruption counts, accused of giving a student better grades in exchange for sex.

The student also allegedly gave Tey Tsun Hang, 41, an expensive Mont Blanc pen and taillor-made shirts and paid a four-figure bill for him, according to Bloomberg and Today.

Calling the allegations and charges “very serious,” Tey, who is a former judge, denied any wrongdoing and said he will fearlessly and vigorously defend himself.

If convicted, he could get up to five years in jail and be fined 100,000 in Singapore dollars.
