A teenager was sent to a rehabilitation centre yesterday for having sex with a 12-year-old girl. The 17-year-old had earlier admitted two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a girl under 13, the District Court heard. The first time was in a karaoke club. He lured her into having sex again by giving her pills - prescribed to him for epilepsy - which he said would prevent pregnancy.
