Louis George Jailed
While being spared jail, the 21-year-old was placed on the Sex Offenders Register and ordered to carry out 160 hours of unpaid work, as well as being placed under 12 months of supervision.
Sheriff Gillian Wade found George guilty of the highly unusual sexual assault and said it had been proved by the girl’s evidence and by his own statement to police.
The sheriff said: ‘She tells him what is off-limits and he does it anyway and he doesn’t say anything about her consenting. She says he doesn’t seem to have bothered after he did it.’
Fiscal depute Tina Dickie said: ‘There is no dispute sexual intercourse took place. He couldn’t have cared less as it was a one night stand and he took full advantage of the situation and her level of intoxication.’
Mrs. Dickie added: ‘She did not know things were being recorded so on that basis she could never have given consent to them being forwarded. It did seem to come as a bolt out of the blue to her.’
The 19-year-old student, who cannot be named, said she had been left feeling disgusted and suicidal after discovering she had been filmed during sex and the videos had been posted on social media.
She said she had no idea the video footage existed until she was shown it the following day by friends who had been sent it on Snapchat.
Mrs. Dickie told the court it was a matter of agreement that they had consensual unprotected sexual intercourse and oral sex a number of times.
The teenager said: ‘He had an iPad in his room. I remember looking up and could see a flash and didn’t quite know what it was at the time. The flash went off and I could see it was his iPad.’
She said George, of Tweedsmuir Road, Perth told her he had to go to work and gave her a handful of change for a taxi’ but she ended up walking home.
She said: ‘It didn’t seem real and wasn’t really like me. The girl added I had only had sex with one other person before. I didn’t feel good about it. I was almost numb.’
Later the same day at college, it emerged that a number of people had received video footage from George of her having sex with him at his home.
She said: ‘My friend texted informing me about the videos. It was quite overwhelming. I didn’t know how to react. It was a wash of dread coming over me.
‘It changed my mood completely. I don’t know how to describe it – I was almost ashamed, quite disgusted and shocked.
She added ‘I didn’t want it to be real so I was pretending it wasn’t. The student said I felt quite disgusted with myself. I felt like a slag. I had a lot of self-hatred about what happened.
She said ‘I was really depressed. Once this happened it just created a spiral. I felt quite helpless and that it was already out there, so there wasn’t much I could do. The damage was already done.
‘I saw the videos which were sent which were of me having sex with the accused.’
She said she messaged George and asked him to remove the video from public view, but said she felt that he was not taking her seriously.
She told the trial that she was encouraged by her friends to report the matter to the police and said she later felt ‘suicidal’ over what happened.
The trial was told that she had never met George before but that he had been sitting with a group of her friends when she entered the Sandeman bar in Perth.
She said she had been persuaded to go out during the evening by her friend when they were already drunk and she ‘chugged’ vodka in her home to ‘catch up.’
The teenager said she had more to drink when she was out and had little recollection of going back to George’s home in a taxi with him.
