YouTuber and former radio DJ Dee Kosh was slapped with seven charges in court on Aug. 19, 2021, CNA reported.
Among these are the offences of soliciting sexual services from a minor, sexual exploitation of a young person, as well as making and possessing an obscene film.
The scandal broke in August last year, after an Instagram user came forward with allegations that Dee Kosh had asked for nudes and sexual favours, under the guise of recruiting him as a YouTube talent.
At least four more youths corroborated the first person's allegation with similar accounts.
Dee Kosh subsequently denied having sexual relations with minors, but admitted that there is "truth" to some of the allegations.
The YouTuber laid low for more than half a year while police investigations were ongoing, but in recent months made a comeback on streaming platform Twitch and promoting products on Instagram.
He also lashed out at social media users who criticised him.
Those found guilty of sexual exploitation of a young person are liable to a jail term of up to five years, a fine of up to S$10,000, or both.
Communicating with a minor to obtain sexual services carries a jail term of up to two years and a fine.
Making an obscene film also carries a jail term of up to two years, and a fine of S$20,000 to S$40,000.
Possessing an obscene film carries a jail term of up to six months, a fine of up to S$20,000, or both.
