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