The Scotsman - - Around Scotland - By TESS DE LA MARE

A Scot­tish es­cort con­victed of hav­ing sex with a 14-year-old boy in a Flor­ida ho­tel room has been or­dered to sign the sex of­fend­ers reg­is­ter for seven years.

Sarah Mcgill, 28, was con­victed in June of sex­ual ac­tiv­ity with a male child at the Court­yard Mar­riott in Or­lando af­ter he paid her for sex.

Mcgill, who is orig­i­nally from Selkirk­shire and ran a hyp­nother­apy clinic based in Ed­in­burgh, had been travel- ling across the coun­try when the youth found her de­tails on her on­line es­cort page.

She was spared jail in the US and was in­stead given a pro­ba­tion or­der. Mcgill re­turned to the UK ear­lier this week.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Natalie All­good of the Met’s Jig­saw unit, which mon­i­tors sex of­fend­ers, yes­ter­day ap­plied for Mcgill to be made sub­ject to no­ti­fi­ca­tion re­quire­ments.

She told Uxbridge Mag­is­trates Court: “[The de­fen­dant] was con­victed of a rel­e­vant of­fence in a coun­try out­side the UK.”
