HK Guitar Teacher, Who Beat Jacky Cheung In Singing Contest 39 Years Ago, Arrested For Having Sex With Girlfriend's 13-Year-Old Sister
The 59-year-old admitted that he developed feelings for the young girl despite their massive age gap, and that they were, in fact, in an actual relationship.
In was recently reported in Hong Kong that a 59-year-old guitar-teacher-slash-swimming-instructor named Li Ting Chuan was arrested for having sex with his girlfriend's 13-year-old sister.
It was later revealed that Li Ting Chuan is the same man who beat Heavenly King Jacky Cheung, 61, in a singing competition back in 1983.
In a singing competition organised on TVB variety show Enjoy Yourself Tonight 39 years ago, Ting Chuan, who performed the song 'Promise', defeated Jacky, who sang Michael Kwan's 'Sooner Or Later A Couple', by a score of 44 to 38.
Ting Chuan did not choose to enter showbiz after the competition but remained proud of the victory.
He once said: "At least I made a mark once in my life."
However, things have gone terribly wrong in Ting Chuan's life in the past few years.
According to reports, Ting Chuan was introduced to his girlfriend's 13-year-old sister in 2010, and he was meant to teach her how to swim and play the guitar.
But he unexpectedly developed feelings for the young girl, and subsequently had sex with her.
When Ting Chuan was arrested in 2017, he denied the allegations but was still charged for molesting an underage person at that time.
Five years later, Ting Chuan finally admitted to his past mistakes.
Ting Chuan professed that he developed feelings for the young girl despite their huge age gap, and said that they were, in fact, dating.
He also planned to marry her when she got older.
After Ting Chuan was arrested, the victim refused to testify against him.
Ting Chuan, who is suffering from Alzheimer's disease, is currently awaiting his sentence which would be announced on Dec 14. He is hoping for a lighter sentence due to his medical condition.
However, it's said that with his four charges, which include molesting and unlawful sexual intercourse, Ting Chuan is definitely going to face jail time.
