Jail for sex of­fender, 30, who posed as girl on­line

The Press and Journal (Inverness, Highlands, and Islands) - - NEWS -

A per­vert who posed as teenage girls to en­tice young boys into per­form­ing sex acts over the in­ter­net was branded “ut­terly de­praved” as he was jailed yes­ter­day.

Rory Gill promised he would get boys, some younger than 13, more sub­scribers on video-shar­ing web­site YouTube if they com­plied with his re­quests.

He com­mu­ni­cated via YouTube and the Omegle so­cial me­dia plat­form un­til the alarm was raised by a YouTube mod­er­a­tor.

The 30-year-old, of Burn­side Road, Tar­land, ap­peared for sen­tenc­ing at Aberdeen Sher­iff Court yes­ter­day hav­ing pre­vi­ously pleaded guilty.

Sher­iff Wil­liam Sum­mers sent Gill to prison for three years and nine months and or­dered him to re­main on the sex of­fend­ers reg­is­ter “in­def­i­nitely”.

Dur­ing a hear­ing last month, the court heard that po­lice searched Gill’s home and found 462 in­de­cent videos of chil­dren, with a to­tal play length of 43 hours and 25 min­utes, on a com­puter.

Gill pleaded guilty to act­ing as a fe­male and send­ing writ­ten sex­ual com­mu­ni­ca­tions to male chil­dren, some younger than 13 and some aged be­tween 13 and 16, and re­quest­ing they per­form var­i­ous sex­ual acts be­tween Jan­uary 17 and November 12 last year.

Sher­iff Sum­mers told Gill: “Some of the things you made them do were ut­terly de­praved.”
