Law lecturer embroiled in sex for grades scandal

A law professor at the National University of Singapore has been charged with six counts of corruptly obtaining gratification after allegedly handing out good grades in exchange for sex, cash and, errr, a pen.
Tey Tsung Hang, the director of the school's Centre for Commercial Law Studies, has been accused of accepting a Mont Blanc pen, two tailor-made shirts, an iPod touch, cash and some sex in return for handing out good grades to 23 year-old student Darinne Ko Wen Hui. According to a Today Online report
, his alleged haul is as follows:
|Mont Blanc pen
|Tailor-made shirts (x2)
|Sexy times (x2)
Tey, who is a former district judge, was arrested in April this year after the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau received a tip off about the alleged inducements for favourable marks, which are reported to have occurred between May and July 2010. Apparently Tey has been suspended by the university, while Ko, who is currently interning at an unnamed law firm outside Singapore, is reported to have been questioned by the CPIB but not arrested.
Tey denies the charges and gave an impassioned speech on the court steps, telling the assembled media: "At stake is my liberty, integrity and livelihood. My reputation has been tarnished, and my family suffers as a result
