YouTuber Dee Kosh pleads guilty to sexual charges involving exploitation of a teenage boy

In a statement to a district court, his lawyer said Dee Kosh, a Singapore radio DJ and YouTube celebrity, had opted to file a guilty plea to various sex-related offenses, five months after he was initially charged.

He is charged with seven criminal counts in total, including three counts of communicating with a minor under the age of 18 in order to obtain their sexual services, one count of trying to sexually exploit a minor under the age of 18, one count of possessing obscene videos, and two counts of creating obscene videos. His real name is Darryl Ian Koshy.

Eugene Thuraisingam LLP is representing him, and Mr Johannes Hadi and Mr Joel Wong are among the attorneys on his side.

The latter informed District Judge Terence Tay recently that the prosecution is prepared and that Koshy had instructed him to be “prepared to follow a certain course of action.”

In order to sort out the agreed statement of facts, Mr Wong requested 10 to 12 weeks’ time, stating that it would “contain certain intricacies, therefore it may take some time to figure out.”

The District Judge Tay concurred with the police prosecutor’s assessment that this was “very prolonged.” The court then scheduled a hearing on March 10 for the plead-guilty hearing.
