A court has found a woman guilty of kissing a teenager who thought she was a man after she deceived her online. Georgia Bilham, 21, used Snapchat to create a fake male profile named George Parry and lured her 19-year-old victim into a relationship.
Bilham, from Alpraham, Cheshire, hid her face under a hood and claimed she was paranoid because of her involvement with Albanian criminals. She also removed her victim’s glasses whenever they met, as she was severely short-sighted.
The Chester Crown Court heard that Bilham was not happy with herself and used George as an escape from her reality. She said she never wanted to change her gender but had questioned her sexuality.
She also said she thought her victim knew she was not a man before they became intimate and denied stuffing her pants with anything. She said she believed her lies were exposed when she crashed her mother’s car in May 2021 and showed her driving licence to the police.
Bilham was acquitted of 16 other charges of sexual assault and assault by penetration between May and August 2021. She only admitted to kissing her victim once without consent.
Judge Michael Leeming deferred her sentence until July 19 and told her that all options were open, including jail time. He also ordered her to sign the sex offenders’ register.
Bilham showed no emotion as she left the court.
