A Scottish woman is being kicked out of the US after having sex with a 14-year-old boy who paid her $480 to take his virginity.

Sarah McGill, a 28-year-old hypnotherapist from Galashiels in Selkirkshire, was arrested in Florida in April.

She was facing up to 15 years in prison after the victim told police he had contacted McGill online before arranging to meet in a hotel room in Orlando.

But she was given five years’ probation and ordered to leave the US immediately after being convicted of lewd or lascivious battery, The Mirror reports.

Her probation is set to be terminated upon her leaving the country, according to the newspaper.

However, it is unclear what her travel plans are.

McGill had been due to face trial next month after denying the charges against her.

However, she told police that the possibility of a length sentence ‘scared her’ and prosecutors were willing to make a deal.

She was sentenced at the Orange County courthouse in Orlando on Wednesday.

It comes after she sobbed during a two-hour interview with police that she felt ‘terrible’ that the boy in question was a minor and insisted she didn’t know beforehand.

In interviews with police, McGill said she had been travelling alone across the US but claimed she was sightseeing.

However, when they accused her of being a prostitute, she said ‘there is truth in that.’

‘He wanted to touch me. We were talking and one thing led to another. That was it. I wish that I never took him upstairs. I feel like such an idiot,’ she said. 

‘Whatever happened, I never had any ill intention. I’m just a very down-to-earth, normal person.’

She added: ‘I’ve never been in handcuffs or anything like that so it’s scary for me. I think I should leave the country and I think I should be told off. I don’t want to go to jail. I’m really scared.’

McGill was arrested in April after having sex with the teenager in a hotel room at the Courtyard Marriot in Orlando.

The 14-year-old said he made contact with a woman named ‘Sophia Belle’ when he was searching online for prostitutes.

Police later identified that woman from her United Kingdom passport as Sarah Louise McGill and she was arrested.

According to her social media profiles, McGill is a professional clinical hypnotherapist and runs her own business in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The victim told police he had reached McGill on Quora.com, according to her arrest report.

McGill and the boy allegedly started texting each other before they arranged to meet.

The victim told police McGill had met him on the first floor of the hotel near the elevator before taking him up to her room.

After they had sex, the victim said he gave McGill $480 as a ‘donation’ and left the room.

The victim also told police that he felt ‘guilty’ about sleeping with McGill but only did it because he felt peer pressure to lose his virginity.

Police said after speaking with the boy and his father, authorities went to the same hotel room and found McGill there with another man.

They allegedly found condom wrappers, cash and unused condoms inside a safe in her room.
