Hong Kong, Jan 20 (DPA) A Hong Kong police detective Tuesday began a seven-year jail term after being convicted of raping an 18-year-old girl.Crime squad officer Choi Chai-him, 33, met the teenager over the internet and lured her to his home with the promise of downloading games onto her portable PlayStation games console.

The court was told that the married policeman began molesting her. When she resisted, she took her to his bedroom and raped her, Hong Kong’s High Court was told.

A jury Monday found Choi guilty of rape by a majority verdict despite his claims that the teenager consented to sex when she went to his home in February last year.
