According to BBC, Kevin has been found guilty of a sexual assault that happened in 2017. He claimed that he had helped a woman after she fell ill. However, his DNA was found in a pair of his accuser’s underwear.
Tom Hughes, the sheriff of the court, told Kevin that “the court must show that women can be protected from domestic sexual offenses. The offense you have been convicted of caused distress and consequences to the young woman involved in this case.”
“She was unwell and thought her drink had been spiked elsewhere that night,” he went on. “The jury accepted that you committed these heinous crimes and the only appropriate sentence is imprisonment.”
The woman who fell ill had told police that she was helped to actor Scott Reid‘s apartment.
While Scott called the National Health Service helpline, Kevin was left in the room with her and she recalled her shirt being removed and being groped before Kevin had assaulted her. The assault stopped when Scott returned to the room.
Kevin has been placed on the sex offenders register in Scotland indefinitely.
