Former law professor Tey Tsun Hang was sentenced to five months jail by Chief District Judge Tan Siong Thye on Monday.

Update: Tey sat stoned-faced as his sentence was read out by the judge. He was later led away in handcuffs to the Subordinate Courts lock-up, but is expected to be released on bail - which has been raised to $150,000 from $100,000 - later in the day.

He told The Straits Times before the start of proceedings at 9.30am, that while he was "distressed" by the court's judgement last Wednesday and expects to be given a six-month jail term. This after the 42-year-old was found guilty by Chief District Judge Tan Siong Thye last week, on all six counts of corruptly obtaining sex and gifts - a Mont Blanc pen, an iPod, two tailored shirts, and dinner at Garibaldi Italian Restaurant & Bar - from his former student Darinne Ko.
