Woman, 21, who posed as man to sexually assault severely short-sighted teen girl avoids jail | The Sun

A YOUNG woman who posed as a man to sexually assault a severely short-sighted teen girl has swerved jail.

Georgia Bilham, 21, hid her long blonde hair in a hood while pretending to be George Parry.

She told her 19-year-old victim she was "paranoid" after getting involved with Albanian gangsters, which enabled her to hide beneath her disguise.

Bilham also put on a strong Birmingham accent and took away her victim's glasses when they met – leaving her "essentially blind".

She has now avoided jail after being convicted of a single count of sexual assault by kissing.

Bilham was cleared of a further 16 allegations following an eight-day trial.

She was handed a 24-month community order for the "carefully constructed deception" by Judge Michael Leeming.

Bilham must also carry out 150 hours of unpaid work and take part in 35 rehabilitation days, as well as signing the sex offenders register for five years.

Sentencing , Judge Leeming said: "You took advantage of the complainant's relative naivety. She was taken in by you.

"You continue to deny your behaviour was sexually motivated. You are said to express regret and relief that this is out in the open."

Chester Crown Court was told she created a Snapchat persona called George Parry to dupe the teen girl.

After meeting for the first time, the girl messaged her saying: "There's something weird about you".

Despite this, Bilham managed to pin her behaviour on social anxiety and the pair embarked on a toxic "love-hate relationship".

Bilham's web of lies finally unravelled when she crashed her mum's car while on a drive with her victim in May 2021.

When police checked her driving licence, the teen discovered her boyfriend was actually a woman named Georgia.

The girl's mum had also grown suspicious of her daughter's partner, causing the victim to do her own sleuthing on social media.

She told how she was left feeling "sick" when she discovered Bilham's true identity.

She then confronted her after learning who "he" really was, writing in a message: "Just admit you've been caught out, I know more than enough now."

Bilham replied: "I don't even dress like a lad, it just took over my life."

In her evidence, she claimed she was a "bit of a tomboy" when she was younger and, although she never wanted to change gender, she had questioned her sexuality.

Bilham described setting up the account as an "escape", adding: "I was not confident in myself.
