A TEENAGE girl who was conned into having sex with a woman who posed as a boy has told of her outrage after the fraudster avoided a jail sentence.

Christine Wilson convinced two 15-year-old girls she was a male called Chris in order to sleep with them.

Wilson, 25, admitted two charges of obtaining sexual intimacy by fraud and was sentenced to three years' probation and 240 hours' community service at the High Court in Edinburgh.

One of the victims, Megan Adie, now 18, told of her anger at the sentence. Ms Adie, who waived her right to anonymity, said: "I'm absolutely devastated with the sentence Christine has been given.

"She will be able to go back to her own house and lie in her own bed again. I will also be lying in mine, still trying to deal with what she has done to me.

"I really hope the judge has thought this sentence through because if Christine does this again I hope he knows it's on his conscience."

Wilson, of Aberdeen, had repeated sexual contact with one girl in 2008, and with Ms Adie in 2010.

The conwoman was introduced to the first teenager by a mutual friend shortly before her victim's 16th birthday in 2008.

Her first victim ended the fraudulent relationship after being shown Wilson's passport photograph.

Wilson told Ms Adie she was a 16-year-old boy. The teenager regarded Wilson as her first love and struggled to come to terms with her deceit when police told her the truth in August 2010.

Sentencing Wilson at the High Court in Edinburgh, Lord Bannatyne said he accepted she had a gender identity disorder and would show her leniency as she pled guilty at an early stage.

He said: "These are very unusual offences. I have accepted you genuinely feel you are male rather than female. I believe this obviously significantly reduces your culpability.

"I believe this can be dealt with by the imposition of a probation order."

Wilson was also placed on the sex offenders register for three years.

The court heard Wilson would not allow the girls to "do anything to her that might reveal her gender".

Jane Farquharson, prosecuting, told an earlier hearing: "Christine Wilson has, by her own admission, experienced some confusion about her sexuality.

"She has since childhood presented as a boy. Both complainers believed they were in a relationship with a boy."

Defence advocate Shelagh McCall told the court her client has gender identity disorder and hopes to undergo reassignment therapy in the future.

She said Wilson had assumed a gender neutral identity from an early age and had asked the judge not to jail her as she would be "vulnerable" in prison.

Ms McCall added: "The deceit is the fact she did nothing to dis-abuse them of the notion he is biologically female. The accused would be vulnerable in a prison because of his offences and because of his gender identity."
