A Scottish hypnotherapist, who was paid for sex by a 14-year-old boy in the US, has been deported back to the UK.
Sarah McGill, 28, from Galashiels, was convicted in August of sexual battery with a minor at a Courtyard Marriott hotel in Florida.
She was previously hit with a deportation order by American authorities but was arrested as she attempted to fly home in breach of probation terms.
McGill, who runs a hypnotherapy business in Edinburgh told police officers last month, “one thing led to another” after meeting the boy, who said he felt “guilty” following the encounter at an Orlando hotel.
In police interviews released to a Sunday newspaper, McGill, said: “We didn’t just talk. He wanted to touch me. We were talking and one thing led to another. That was it.
“I wish I never took him upstairs. I feel like such an idiot.”
After sex, the boy claims he paid McGill $480 (£360) before leaving the hotel.
Asked by police how old she thought the teen was, McGill said: “Maybe 16. He was really young looking for his age. I believed what he said that he was 18. He looked younger.”
She added: “I didn’t want to harm anybody. That was never my intention. I feel really bad.”
McGill had been locked up in Glades County Detention Centre in Moore Haven, Florida — but immigration officials last night revealed she was finally deported on Tuesday, The Scottish Sun reported.
