Jonathan McKinlay, a bingo hall employee from Dundee, has been found guilty of sexual assaults of two colleagues and has been placed on the sex offenders register.
The 41-year-old Chef and Tattoo artist was found guilty at Dundee Sheriff Court for sexual assault carried out at a bingo hall and at a nightclub in Dundee between December 2018 and May 2019.
According to a news report, McKinlay was found guilty of sexually assaulting one woman at Buzz Bingo between April 1st and May 13th, 2019, by touching her breast. He was also found guilty of grabbing the same woman's behind on May 10th, 2019 and pulling her towards him so his groin was pressed against her.
The Bingo hall worker was also found guilty of sexually assaulting another woman by touching her leg and thigh at the Rewind nightclub in December 2018.
McKinlay was found guilty at the end of October but his sentence was deferred until now awaiting reports. Upon his conviction, an emotional McKinlay said: “But I didn’t do any of this.”
Sheriff George Way, however, did not accept McKinlay’s version of events and found him guilty of three charges of sexual assault.
Along with being placed on the sex offenders list, McKinlay has been sentenced to carry out 200 hours of unpaid community work and will be under supervision for one year.
Sheriff George Way said:
“I’d like him (McKinlay) to have someone to talk to. He needs to have someone to talk to while this is all going on.”
