Woman was sexually intimate with girls while pretending to be a man

A woman has admitted being sexually intimate with two teenage girls after telling them she was a man.

In what is believed to be the first conviction of its kind in Scotland, Christine Wilson pled guilty to two charges of obtaining sexual intimacy by fraud.

The 25-year-old from Aberdeen had told the girls her name was Chris.

On Wednesday, the High Court in Edinburgh heard that one of the girls was aged between 15 and 16 when she first met Wilson in 2008.

She only discovered the truth when a girl from Stonehaven emailed her a copy of Wilson's passport. She then ended the relationship.

The second girl was 15 when she became friends with Wilson two years later, after being introduced to her at an amusement park.

She told Wilson she was 16 and they later slept with each other. It was the first time she had had sexual contact with anyone.

Wilson had ended the relationship by the time police visited the girl and told her she was a woman. The court heard the girl described Wilson as her "true love."

Defence advocate Shelagh McCall told the court that her client has gender identity disorder. She stated that her client is hoping to undergo gender reassignment therapy at some point in the future.

Wilson will be sentenced next month after Lord Bannatyne ordered for report on the case.
