Four months and three weeks in prison.
Bloomberg reports that Buergin showed no sign of remorse by standing trial and claiming he was a victim of deception by the girl and her pimp, Singapore Subordinate Courts Judge Eddy Tham said Wednesday after convicting the 41-year-old Swiss national on April 30 of two counts of having sex with a minor.
Prosecutors, who have charged 51 men for sex with the prostitute, had sought a sentence of at least six months for each count. Buergin could have been jailed as long as 7 years and fined for each charge.
His lawyer had asked for a sentence in line with the other 18 men who have been jailed for as long as 16 weeks for sex with the same girl after pleading guilty.
Buergin was handcuffed and led away by two policemen. He doesn’t intend to appeal his sentence at this time, his lawyer Selva Naidu said.
