Sarah McGill, a 28-year-old sex worker who was convicted of sleeping with a teenager in a Florida hotel room, has been ordered to sign the sex offenders register for seven years.
In June 2018, McGill was convicted of sexual activity with a male child at the Courtyard Marriott in Orlando, after he paid her $480 for sex.
While McGill — who used the alias Sophia Belle — was originally arrested on April 6 and was found guilty of lewd or lascivious battery in June, however, she avoided jail time and was instead placed on probation.
McGill, who is from Selkirkshire, Scotland, returned to the United Kingdom the week of October 8 and was ordered to sign the sex offenders register in a hearing at Uxbridge Magistrates Court.
Detective Constable Natalie Allgood of the Met’s Jigsaw unit told Uxbridge Magistrates Court: “(The defendant) was convicted of a relevant offence in a country outside the UK.” McGill was not required to attend the brief hearing.
Magistrate Lyn Green made her the subject of notification requirements for seven years commencing June 18 this year – the date of her conviction.
McGill, currently of no fixed abode, must notify police of her address and other addresses where she stays regularly, and also if she is living with anyone under the age of 18. The former hypnotherapist sobbed during the two hour interview and said that “I swear I didn’t know” the boy was under 18.
She said: “I wish that I never took him upstairs. I feel like such an idiot.”
Following her conviction, McGill was arrested on September 1 while trying to fly back to Britain from Orlando International Airport. She was then deported back to Britain and was ordered to sign the sex offenders register for seven years.
